Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations

Little Hearts early childhood centre is a purpose built early learning centre in Mangere, which caters for 2 years to 5 years age group.

We are licensed for 38 over 2 children.

Our location is in front of Jean Batten School makes it convenient for parents to drop off their children at Little Hearts.

The management and staff endeavor to provide a safe and caring environment where children are respected as individuals and learn at their own pace alongside professionally trained early childhood teachers who are passionate and responsible.

We also employ more teachers in our childcare centre than the minimum required by law, which means better supervision and teaching for your child.

Our practices reflect the multicultural heritage of our community and we endeavour to provide an atmosphere that is warm, accepting and welcoming to both children and their families.
