Welcome to Pukeko ELC

“Play is the work of children”.

Here at Pukeko ELC we provide a home away from home for children aged from three month’s to school age.  We ensure a safe, caring, respectful, fun, and natural environment with excellent qualified staff ratios.  Our aim is to nurture happy, confident, and curious learners and to install a life long love of learning within them.

Our Philosophy

At Pukeko ELC we are inspired by the Reggio Emilia and RIE approaches and thrive to incorporate these into our daily practices in our Pipi and Paua rooms.
