Henderson Early Childcare Centre

Located in the vibrant Waitakere region of Auckland, Bear Park Henderson has made itself an indispensable part of a multilingual, culturally-rich family dominated community.

Bear Park Henderson is an architecturally designed and user friendly in aspects of parking and child care facilities. Bear Park Henderson is an up to date modern building incorporating five dedicated educational classrooms catering for our tamariki age and stage specific. The centre has an outdoor environment which is reflective of West Auckland offering spaces which allow children to be one with nature and among the trees through our secret garden spaces. Children can discover small cosy nests of space, as well as shared areas that encourage them to collaborate. We believe children, teachers and whanau are collaborative learners, working alongside each other in a tuakana teina relationship.

Bear Park Henderson is also next door to other educational facilities, including Summerland Primary School and a local kindergarten. The result is a tight-knit educational hub which helps to ensure children have a smooth transition to school and the ability to connect and support our community through events and investigation or projects.

Teachers truly value and invite parent participation, whether encouraging parents to check in during the day, communication on Storypark, our parents are active in our centre events such as luna new year, matariki, mothers day, fathers day, spring gala, transition to school parent evenings, Parent investigation evenings, cultural celebration events and our Christmas celebrations or through the Parent Committee, a voice that encourages open and honest communication. We value partnership with our families and strive to offer opportunities for them to participate within Bear Park Henderson.
