Owner operator Nikeeta Singh and husband Dr Darius Singh had the vision of a world class, trusted and inspirational family environment of learning and fun for their own children five years ago. They bring with them a passion and commitment to families in the local communities of Otumoetai (Tauranga), Auckland City, Blockhouse Bay (Central Auckland) and Avondale (West Auckland) to create childcare centres that are among the most talked about, unique, personalised, inspirational and highest quality early childhood education centres in NZ. Since their dream and vision years ago, they have been spending almost every waking hour designing and developing the “never-seen-before” reputation they now have for their inspirational childcare environments.
“… We started with one of our family values which is ‘Honouring the past…Visioning the future'”, says Nikeeta, ” Soon, one thing led to another and we found ourselves designing classroom features and building concepts never seen before with rooms that look like the inside of a cocoon, sleeping inside a tree in the rooms, traditional “Kiwi backyard” & Pacific village inspired outdoor areas, and we even went as far as designing cot rooms that lie under the soft twinkling laser starlight of galaxies and constellations”.
“We then jumped into the future and continued to add personal touches and modern learning centre facilities like audio visual systems, children’s IT area, KIDCAM for parents to view our rooms from reception, and learning portfolios with our exclusive online patented Learning Roots and Shoots program that visualises children’s progress as growing trees. These things and more would make any parent wish they could go back in time and relive kindy all over again and its these personal wishlists together with our dream-team of teachers that we hope will make our unique centres become one of the most talked about early learning centres in NZ and the world…”
Having over 14 years of experience in the ECE sector and met with hundreds of parents (and listening to their concerns and wishlists) over this time, Nikeeta became convinced of key philosophies and unique learning styles in a family centred and warm environment. Supported by her husband (a former university Professor), she decided to start up a child care business to pursue their shared dream – to develop an innovative and inspirational early childhood education centre in NZ that they would be proud sending their own children to (and did so) – the ultimate litmus test.
“…We firmly believe that our multi-award winning performance and trusted reputation comes from our simple and strong family foundations, from which our values, vision, mission and outcomes MUST be easily visible to you and your child every day and in every way…”
