Tiaho Room

Welcome to the wonderful world of one year olds!! We have a wonderful outdoor area set up safely for emerging gross motor skills and for more adventurous ones! Move on indoors and check out our children’s favourite area; our light room, here the children experience everchanging lights, patterns and shadows, what will it be today?

What shall we do today? We will sing and dance. Shall we do messy play? Maybe some painting, let’s build with the blocks, read some books, maybe we will go on a walk, the possibilities are endless.

Our onsite cook prepares delicious nutritious meals and snacks. We supply the nappies in this room. All you have to do is bring plenty of spare clothes.


Nikki is a qualified teacher and she loves her job so much she travels to us from Hamilton! Nikki is knowledgeable in Te Reo and Maori culture. She is our resident dancer and enjoys getting all the tamariki up and moving! She is also an avid knitter (so get your orders in!).

Rachel is currently studying towards her qualifications. She is calm, gentle and nurturing with strong maternal instincts. Rachel likes to share what she is learning and brings new ideas and perspectives to the centre. We look forward to Rachel completing her studies and supporting her with this journey.
