Kohimarama Childcare Centre


KohiBear Park Kohimarama opened in 2005 as a purpose-built learning space to serve within a close knit community. The centre is beloved by children and parents alike for its light and airy design, and was carefully planned to incorporate features that are unique to Bear Park’s philosophy.

The centre invites young children to explore and play through a variety of large open spaces and intimate areas. In this way, we provoke full expression in the individual while encouraging deep exploration among small groups.

Outdoor environments are extensions of indoor ones. In both we actively encourage respect for the environment and are lucky to have mature trees and gardens all around us. Materials and resources are carefully chosen for their natural properties. The older children may spend time nurturing small vegetable gardens and gifting fresh herbs to our centre’s chef for the daily meals.

Across infant, toddler and preschool spaces, the Kohimarama teaching team is committed to working collaboratively, always striving for both children and whānau to feel welcome and heard.
