Choosing the right early childhood centre is a huge decision;
perhaps even one of the most important choices you will make for your child and your family.
You need to be certain that your child is cared for in an environment that fits well with your family values, provides natural educational opportunities and develops confidence, friendships and self-awareness along the way.
Most of all, you want your child to be happy, cared for and to have fun.
At Natural Steps we believe we meet those challenges. Our carefully thought-out curriculum, experienced team and well designed centres are here to support and nurture the children in our care, working with you to give them the best possible start in life.
At Natural Steps we believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world
We aim to develop a positive attitude and disposition towards learning in each and every child
Clean, spacious and well-equipped we are committed to achieving excellence in health and safety.
Jodie, parent of a gorgeous daughter
We pull up outside our centre and my daughter knows where we are. She is settled and secure here and that is due to the love and care from her teachers. I also see this in the other children in the centre. It is run and feels like a real home, which is highly appealing for parents who are leaving such young babies. We especially love the outside space as there are trees, grass, a sandpit and a safe area to play and run around. It really is special for children having the trees and flowers to look at.
Nigel & Cath Montgomery, parents of two beautiful
We particularly enjoy and respect the effort that the team makes to organise inclusive family events such as the recent wearable art exhibition which was great fun. Communications and presentations around curriculum content are also much appreciated as they help us to track the children's progress and development. We have many fond memories of our family's time at pre-school and can honestly say that it will be a sad day when our youngest "graduates" next year and we leave the Ellerslie Village family behind. We do not hesitate recommending Natural Steps to anyone wanting a professional, fun and safe environment for their little ones.
Tui, mother of an active boy
I went while I was pregnant and was welcomed into the Natural Steps family straight away, I was shown around the whole place and my partner and I both felt at home, I knew this was the place for our son.
