Children and Adults

Inspired by Kindness and Learning

Pikopiko Preschool is wonderfully different to any other centre's around. You feel it the moment you walk in the door. It’s the homely feel, the warm staff, the nature-rich surroundings of the farm the peaceful space.

Train up a child in the way he should; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Pikopiko is a place where children play and develop a love of learning, in a beautiful, sustainable, natural environment. Alongside the children are our carefully selected, caring early childhood teachers who all hold (or are working towards) a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education. These teachers enable the children to enjoy the surroundings, and resources that are carefully chosen and thoughtfully presented. To complete the package, your child’s food is lovingly handmade in our centre kitchen using nutritious and seasonal wholefoods to help their bodies and minds grow.

Situated amongst the beautiful scenery of Clifton Road between Whitford and Beachlands, Pikopiko Preschool is the ideal Childcare Centre in East Auckland for those wanting a

well rounded early education for their children.

With a curriculum based on children's learning alongside each other. Our focus on kindness and mindfulness is integral to this. Pikopiko has a goal to create confidence, creativity and imagination in our children to ensure that

they are prepared for the world of the future.


Our teaching is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy and our practice is based on the principles of Te Whariki (The Early Childhood Curriculum) which addresses wellbeing, belonging, contribution, communication, and exploration.
