OUR PHILOSOPHY

At Tiny Stars everyone is welcome. All tamariki and anau are entitled to the best early learning years.

We are a private community based child care that services the Otara / East Tamaki area in South Auckland. Our learning environments reflect our Pacific infused approach and aspirations for our communities.

We believe in anau and kopu tangata being the first teachers of tamariki. At Tiny Stars we will empower anau to appreciate this important role to ensure our tamariki, reach their potential and be proud of their identity.

Come and visit our center at 208a Preston Rd, East Tamaki, Auckland 2023, or just give us a call on (09) 273 6942. Looking forward to meeting you!

OUR CULTURE

With us culture is valued, all people are welcomed and relationships are important. We provide environments that support diversity, acknowledge Maori as Tangata Whenua and embrace bicultural practices.

Feel free to visit us anytime. We look forward to seeing you.

COMMUNITY – ITI TANGATA

Our tamariki/children and anau/families are from the local area of Otara and East Tamaki. We provide for but not limited to anau/families of Cook Islands heritage. ​

We believe that anau/families are important to our learning so we provide opportunities to tuatua/discuss our shared aspirations.
