More About This Centre »

Welcome!

Piccolo Park childcare centres Mt Wellington Hwy Sylvia Park and Ti Rakau Dr Botany Downs. Fresh, purpose-built, state-of-the-art equipment. Check us out!

Piccolo is an Italian word that means: small, little, tiny, young. That’s why our logo features a baby Pukeko. And the “Park” part of our Piccolo Park name is a nod to the park-like outside areas at our childcare centres. The children liken the outside area to a beach at our Sylvia Park, Mt Wellington centre and a farm at our Ti Rakau Drive, Botany Downs centre.

We lovingly care for…

Wonderful, warm and caring staff in our childcare centres

Our wonderful, warm and caring teachers will guide your child on their exciting learning journey. Our childcare centres are staffed with qualified, professional teachers. These include owners and family members Rukshana and Narisa, who are actively involved in running our childcare centres. Our diverse skills make us a great team and we absolutely love what we do.

The Piccolo Park approach is a reflection of our deeper reason for being…

Our role is to see each child grow and develop to their true capacity in the critical early years. We get great joy and satisfaction knowing we are creating a strong foundation for future years.

We do this through loving care, spending quality time and ensuring each child gets individual attention. We also believe in having fun, building confidence, expressing individuality, and fostering relationships with children and their parents. All in a stimulating environment where children are inspired to learn, grow, create and explore.

What we stand for

To ensure we create a great experience for children and parents, we consciously weave our core values into daily life at Piccolo Park childcare centres…

Qualified teachers and individual attention

Fantastic teachers and quality care make a big difference in the early development of a child. So we choose the teachers for our childcare centres very carefully and look after them well. All of our staff are either qualified or soon to be qualified…

Not only that – we also employ more teachers in our childcare centres than the minimum required by law, which means better supervision and teaching for your child.

We believe it’s important for our teachers to take time to get to know you and your child. It’s the only way their individual needs can be properly catered for.

Fees & facilities

You’ll find our childcare centre fees are very realistic and affordable. They include lunch and morning/afternoon teas. We also have a wonderful variety of learning resources so your child can learn, grow, create and explore in all sorts of different ways. No dated, worn out equipment here – we even have iPads and carefully selected developmental software.

Nutritious menu by a qualified chef

Good nutrition is important for brain development. That’s why a qualified chef has designed our menu, established the kitchen and trained our cook. The chef has carefully developed the meals using the Heart Foundation guidelines – and they’ll be awarded the Healthy Heart Foundation tick soon too. So you can rest assured all your child’s meals and snacks here will be balanced and highly nutritious.

Our menu takes into account any children who may have allergies or special dietary requirements such as gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, etc. We are also a nut-free centre. If you have gluten, vegetarian, halal, or any cultural or religious requirements, please let us know and we will adapt to suit.

Fantastic outdoor areas

The outdoor areas of our childcare centres are pretty cool, as voted by the children themselves. It’s best summed up by a child visiting our Sylvia Park, Mt Wellington centre. We overheard her shouting excitedly, “Daddy, Daddy, I’ll show you the outside, it’s like a beach!”

Piccolo Park’s outdoor area is safe, private and there are a great range of activities. Including some wonderful water features that are huge fun and great teaching tools too. Our outdoor area gives children the freedom to be active learners, experimenters and explorers.

You are most welcome to come and view – just get in touch to arrange a visit so we can show you around.

Journey books

Your child will have a journey book for the time they are at our childcare centres. This book tells the story of your child’s development while at the childcare centre. Your child’s journey book is something you will want to keep forever!
