Little Poppy's Environment



About Little Poppy's

Little Poppy’s is a purpose built centre. The environments are designed to flow and allow the staff to regularly change the spaces to cater for the children’s individual and collective needs and interests.


The kitchen is located in the middle of the centre, between the preschool room and the toddler room. This allows tamariki to participate in baking and cooking.


The Preschool and Toddler rooms help tamariki to develop skills based on their interests. These rooms allow the children to explore different activities that will expand their knowledge, while providing them with challenges that will further their desire to learn.


The Infant room has two spaces and a small kitchenette so that bottles can be prepared. One of the infant spaces is designed to accommodate non-walking infants and has an adjoining sleep room. The second infant space is designed for children as they learn to walk, with resources that support the development of their gross motor skills.
