otumoetai plunket educating youngsters
OPEYS Plunket Education and Care Centre was established over 40 years ago by Plunket to meet the needs of families and children in the Tauranga community.
Our teachers / kaiako are committed, enthusiastic advocates for children.
We foster children's holistic learning, providing a diverse programme committed to Te Whaariki and Te Tiriti O Waitangi partnership.
