Creators Forest Lake lies in the heart of our community, situated at the top of a hill overlooking our city. We are a homely, converted centre full of love and learning. We use natural materials to complement our classroom environment and create authentic experiences for the tāmariki in our comfortable and cosy spaces. Our team are inspired by our tāmariki and their whānau which helps them to develop genuine love for anyone who come through our doors. We thrive to provide environments that are rich in learning opportunities through exploring nature. We have a passion for the outdoors and for helping to raise a generation of children who are empathetic to the needs of the earth. God is at the centre of everything we do here and we love to help our tāmariki to grow in awe and wonder of God and all his creations. Our teachers strive to partner with each child and their whānau and embark on learning journeys that support their individual passions and aspirations.
Creators know your kid, and they grow who your kids are.
Creators is such a lovely place for my son’s to attend and I wouldn’t have it any way else. They have so many opportunities to explore and develop their passions, inside and outside of the classroom. Forest lake has a fantastic team who are always excited and welcoming. It has developed a great home/ whanau feeling. Arohanui team keep up the amazing job you are doing with our tamariki and the next generation to come.

You do the most important job in the world, you look after my kids and they love it there! You love my kids, you care for them, you help raise them, you help them learn & grow. I appreciate & thank you for it all.
Creators is much more than a daycare centre. The staff are amazing and go well beyond their roles as teachers to ensure our boys are nurtured and educated. I love their family focus and the creativity of the activities and events they organise throughout the year. I am so glad we picked Creators to care for our boys.
Choosing a centre was a daunting idea. I knew I wanted one that was homely and nurturing to make the transition from home to day-care easier. I found that and more at Creators! Initially, I loved that Creator’s had REAL grass and amazing indoor-outdoor flow so my daughter (wild child) could be one with nature. Over time, I came to see Creators was SO much more. The staff are incredible. They give REAL hugs. The ones that come from a place of love and positive regard. A soulful hug. They go the extra mile to make sure each child’s unique needs are meet. For us, it was standing at the gate every morning to wave goodbye which gave my daughter peace of mind. Bless. We are really going to miss our second home!!
