On the sunny corner of Shelly Beach Road and Tweed Street, just a few minutes’ walk from Ponsonby Primary School, you’ll find the wonderful world of Bear Park Herne Bay.
Our centre is located in a characterful, homely bungalow, with a modern, purpose-built extension. The extension was designed to allow natural light to spill into the interior, creating learning spaces that are connected, inviting and well-equipped. No matter what your child’s age, our days follow a familiar pattern and rhythm – creating a safe foundation from which children can explore. Our indoor and outdoor classrooms are inventive and richly resourced, with the constant goal of supporting our children’s learning and creating opportunities for imaginative, creative and scientific play.
Our pre-schoolers have a multi-layered learning environment which challenges and invites curiosity. Our infants and toddlers share a common outdoor garden and natural play area, separated from the older children by a low fence. This enables all our members to be supported by age-appropriate resources while interacting with their bigger and littler peers.
At Bear Park Herne Bay, we are passionate about creating an environment that is warm, caring and focused on the self-worth and wellbeing of children, teachers and whānau.
We strongly believe in the power of meaningful learning spaces where children can delve into the realms of exploration, curiosity and wonder.
