Inspiring Lifelong Learners

Our philosophy is proven.

Our vision is inspired.

Our children are changing the world.


Our children are guided to make positive partnerships, learn holistically and understand the value of their contributions. 



We prioritise an ongoing involvement with our parents through parent-teacher meetings and evenings, newsletters, and an independent parents’ committee.


We take great pride in the dedication of our teaching teams who encourage curiosity, acknowledge potential and delight in seeing children flourish.


Our spaces are comforting, cosy and light-filled to create environments that are stimulating, nurturing, flexible and richly resourced.

Our Philosophy

Te Whāriki, our New Zealand early childhood curriculum, and the principles and values of the internationally acclaimed Reggio Emilia Approach weave together beautifully to strongly underpin our Bear Park educational programme, giving us an invaluable foundation for lifelong learning.

Beautiful and Unique Environments

We believe in the importance of providing the highest quality early childhood education and care – a belief that is evident throughout our eleven vibrant centres.

Giving back to the community

Bear Park stands for kindness, empathy and generosity. Each year, as a whole group, we fundraise for a specific charitable organisation, involving all of our children, parents, whānau and teachers in the process. As a group we’ve raised money, increased awareness and supported a diverse group of incredible charities doing incredible things … and that’s just the beginning. Read more about the great work our families, children and teachers have been part of.
