The Orchard Child Care & Preschool

Growing great kids

About Us & Our ERO report (click for the ERO report)

pond play

We aim to provide exceptional child care,in a semi rural environment. Our boutique home-like setting is warm and cosy. Our grounds are unique with established trees for hiding and climbing, bike track in one of our paddocks, a farm for outdoor discovery and the hugest sandpit we've ever seen.

We place importance on children having space to explore, create and develop with few restrictions and limitations placed on them.

Children's creativity and interests are nurtured, while using rich language and introducing a huge variety of learning experiences.

Children's interests, abilities, curiosity and passions are integral to the running of our centre.

We are situated in semi-rural north Ngongotaha. This location is ideal for parents from rural Kaharoa, Mamaku, Hamurana, Mourea and Ngongotaha.

Only two minutes from Ngongotaha and 12 minutes from central Rotorua, the centre is on state highway 36, so no extra detours for parents and caregivers. Vegetarian meals are provided with an emphasis on quality food from sustainable providers, where possible from onsite edible gardens.

Location: 7 Oturoa Rd, Ngongotaha, Rotorua (entry off Oturoa Rd)

Mon - Fri: 7.30am-5pm

We have no fixed playgrounds - all part of developing creativity whilst challenging our Littlies. The reels, balance beam, rocks and planks are moved daily, often to where the children suggest they should go - building muscles, coordination and creative design
