Explore, learn, play …

At this Reggio Emilia inspired Early Learning centre, we offer the highest quality learning program from our Opaheke location. We are passionate about early childhood development and root our approach in the highly-regarded Reggio Emilia way of learning.

We inspire families to adopt our life-long learning approach to education, on the basis of facilitating the importance that their children deserve the best possible start in life and the many opportunities available for their future endeavors.

Our philosophy

The highly regarded Reggio Emilia Approach underpins our approach to childcare and learning. We see children as a source of strength and inspiration and recognize their ability as constructors of their own experiences. We create supporting and enriching environments that encourage discovery and interactions with peers, families, educators and the wider society.

Parent Feedback

We had been looking around at a few childcare centres in Papakura and Peter Pan ticked all the boxes for us. The teachers are lovely and really down to earth. Love how all parents are kept informed and updated about their kids. This place is neat and tidy and a great location. Thanks Peter Pan we highly recommend you!

We researched nearly every daycare in the Papakura and Franklin area, and decided on Peter Pan Daycare in Opaheke/Papakura. We always liked the Montessori type philosophy around education, and we felt this daycare had a similar type of feel and approach. We love that the Centre has so many cultures and each is respected and nurtured. After looking at around 20 daycares, this one really ticked all the boxes for us.
