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 philosophy

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.  We acknowledge and respect all cultures and family aspirations for their children, embracing children's individuality, natural curiosity and inquiry.  We encourage children to be independent and confident with positive self esteem and social competencies that provide a solid foundation for development and a life long love of learning.
