Piccolini Private Kindergarten & Childcare Hastings

At Piccolini Hastings, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.

With a safe and nurturing daycare environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.

Our Hastings kindergarten and childcare centre caters for tamariki aged 3 months – 6 years and we are open 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday. Our purpose-built Hastings centre located on Southampton St, making us easy to find and within a short travelling distance to the local town, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

Your child will love the well laid out learning areas at our daycare centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.  There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.

Our Hastings childcare and Kindy teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.

Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development.  All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.  This special environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.
