This is Creators
We have three beautiful centres in the Waikato region each offering rich environments for learning and discovery.
Our Forest Lake, Waipa and Grandview centres are staffed by passionate kaiako who work hand-in-hand with little ones to learn about the world around them.
Each centre is like a home away from home, full of beauty and love.
Our Waipa centre features innovative design which encourages beautiful interactions. Relationships are at the heart here, and children at Waipa join a very special community which supports them to grow in empathy, compassion and creativity.
Our friendly Forest Lake centre sits on the top of a hill overlooking Hamilton City and is a place of love and learning. We incorporate nature and authentic experiences in all we do, raising tamariki who embrace the environment and are full of wonder at the beauty of creation.
At Grandview, our multicultural community celebrates diversity, relationships and family. Through genuine heart-felt interactions our loving kaiako partner with tamariki and their whānau to help children grow, thrive and reach their potential.
At all our Creators centres, there is a sense of fun and discovery. Rich and innovative opportunities to play and learn can be found around every corner, supported by passionate kaiako.
At Creators, we celebrate the sense of child-like curiosity about the world. Together with our beautiful tamariki we spend our days full of fun and wonder, researching, solving problems and investigating how the world works. We endeavour to see the world through a child’s eyes, and learn alongside our tamariki.
Nature and its resources enable tamariki to interact with the environment and explore the world. We facilitate forest programmes and often take nature walks or look to the earth and sky around us for inspiration and learning. At Creators we care about the future of the planet and its citizens. We advocate for children's rights and view our tamariki as equal citizens. We hope to raise a generation of tamariki who treasure the environment and respect its resources, so they too can become kaitiaki of all that God has created.
At each of our centres, connecting with whānau and the wider community is important. We value our relationships with parents, grandparents and caregivers. These relationships are nurtured as these are the hands that will lift each child, to enable them to soar, now and into the future. We support each tamaiti, in an atmosphere of love, support and collaborative learning – so they can reach their full potential and be the best version of themselves.
The world is made up of stories. Stories from the past. Stories about what the future might be. Stories about who we are. At Creators, our story is made up of many unique and heartfelt moments that have come together to form one beautiful picture. Click here to learn more about Creators’ early childhood services...
Our Learning Model
We don’t like to box things in. But we do have some principles that support the work we do as early childhood educators. At its simplest, our early learning model creates environments where children feel trusted, cared for and free to explore the wonderful world around them. Find our more about our unique early learning model here.
We believe that people are the true magic of our early learning organisation. The kind of people who wear their hearts on their sleeves and let their passion for others show. Everyone who joins our tribe becomes part of the growing collective who believes that through the lens of love we can make the world a better place. Meet the team behind the dream.
