About Us


Centre Kaupapa

We are thankful for the gift of love; our guiding force.  Nurtured by commitment and seasoned by kindness, love is our greatest taonga.

At Natures Cove we believe that every moment is an opportunity for learning, we believe there is nothing without joy.

The foundations of Natures Cove are deeply embedded within our harmonious team.  Our whare is our beautiful home that anchors us as a heart centred community.

We believe that relationships with mother earth/Papatuanuku are an essential investment in our children’s lives, with freedom of play being the engine for real learning.  Children explore the wonder of their imagination, through authentic experiences, partnered by the possibilities of loose parts and natures gifts.

We believe in nurturing our akonga to become kaitiaki of Tauranga Moana, and in return sharing in the abundant koha that Papatuanuku provides for us.

We truly believe that the child is the heart of the matter.

To the child we say…

We hear you, we see you, we trust you,

We will watch you fly.
