Learning Centre

Learn through play

The Royal Oak Learning Centre is a home away from home learning centre. We pride ourselves on creating a home style environment. We build on the children’s interests helping them learn, grow and succeed.

Kindness, calmness, presence – are the essentials in our role model kit here at Royal Oak. Caring is as much a part of the curriculum as literacy and mathematics! Our main language is the language of kindness. That which is nurtured, blossoms and grows.

At Royal Oak Learning Centre, we believe that natural environments impact positively on quality education and care. We offer our students regular opportunities to connect with nature, both inside the Centre and during regular planned excursions.

Activities your child will experience:

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education to cater for children from four months to six years old. We are one big whānau that embraces a range of diverse cultures.

Both centres, which are within walking distance from each other, are well known for their homely indoor environments and natural outdoor spaces which speak to the heart.

We are proud of our child-centred environments that speak to the heart of the child. All our spaces, indoors and outdoors focus on natural open-ended materials that engage children’s brains and imagination. This is a place where they can not only grow but also blossom! 

Our homely, family environments are set up to create emotional safety. It’s only when a child feels safe they can engage in an activity and learn. Safety includes safety from overstimulation. Richness and nourishment for the heart don’t come from having lots of stuff around, but from select, carefully chosen items for children to interact with. There is beauty in simplicity.
