Oma Rāpeti Early Learning Centre
Welcome to Oma Rāpeti, a home-style childcare centre in the middle of Auckland City.
We have a team of highly qualified Kaiako (teachers) who are passionate about their role in your child's future, and committed to providing a premium level of care.
Our centre is inspired by the work of Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber or RIE®️ as you may know it. Our child-led, play-based space is centred around respect for your child as a whole. We closely follow the 5 strands of Te Whāriki in our curriculum, weaving them throughout the day. They will also feature in regular learning stories you receive about your child.
Want to know more about our approach to early learning? Read about our philosophy here.
We also hold a regular open day, so you can come through the centre and learn a little more. Find out the next date on our events page.
