Next door to Sylvia Park School

With Sylvia Park School right next door, it’s a great way to build familiarity and help to smooth the transition from preschool to primary school. Or if you have both a pre-schooler and a primary school child, you’ll find life less complicated when you’re only travelling to one location.

The right people

Our teachers are important and we choose them carefully. All our teachers have a real connection with children, impressive skills, and lovely warm personalities. Because at heart, it’s the people that make the centre feel warm and homely for our children.

Quality care & education

We follow the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki, and have a well-rounded approach covering intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.

Our teachers foster a love of learning so we can maximise each child’s potential in these important early years. We focus on your child’s interests and create opportunities to problem solve, which builds character. We help your child develop important life skills using patience and the understanding that it’s okay to make a mistake – that’s how you learn!

Care for babies

Not all daycare centres cater specifically for babies but we do. Our carefully chosen teachers are highly attuned and sensitive to the emotional and developmental needs of babies. Part of our philosophy is to put care into their education, and education into their care.

Highly resourced

We are so well resourced at Piccolo Park that kids get really excited about their learning. From stimulating educational toys, creative art materials, and very cool play areas, right through to technology such as iPads with apps for pre-schoolers.

Some daycare centres think bringing toys from home is great because those daycares have so few resources. But our policy is no toys from home because we have more than enough and we don’t want our kids to go through the heartache of having their toys broken.

Dental checks

All daycares do hearing and vision checks, but not many do dental checks. We help parents to register for the Auckland Regional Dental Service so you can have peace of mind that your child’s dental health will be checked.

WINZ subsidies

We support families receiving WINZ subsidies and can help you with your application for the subsidy. Visit to find out if you are eligible to receive a benefit.
