Strategically placed in the core of Matamata, New Shoots Matamata takes into account the rural and cultivating families who make up this caring, close-knit community. Generous in size and beautifully modern, your tamariki will feel at home in our bespoke early childhood centre.

Our architect was inspired to plan a dazzling space with a particular Waikato feel. The structure’s striking gabled rooftop welcomes families into our open rooms, which unfurl onto immaculate gardens past. 

Designed for all-weather play with decks and covered spaces, a great playground, and abundant natural materials, we view our rustic outdoor space as a bit of a village. Children can progress at their own pace, siblings can interact, and infants, toddlers and preschoolers can learn from one another.

Local themes of hunting and farming run deep in our centre, and there are limitless possibilities to learn through open play and self-discovery. We inspire exploration – it is the foundation needed to develop problem-solving and perseverance, confidence and resilience.

New Shoots Children’s Centre Matamata, nurturing and teaching are the same, and relationships are at the core of everything we do. Many of our educators grew up in Matamata, and we intensify connections to our local community through rest home visits, parents’ nights, and our Christmas parade float.

If you’re a Waikato family searching for an early childhood centre that feels like home, pop into New Shoots Matamata today.
