Our beautiful purpose built childcare center on 44 Peach grove Road, Hamilton East, Hamilton is open from 7:00 AM to 6:30 PM. The center has a maximum occupancy of 110 children ( 25 under twos and 85 over twos). The building is designed to accommodate three classrooms: Manuka Room(0-2 years), Kowhai Room ( 2-3 years) and Pohutukawa Room ( 3-5 years). The center philosophy is deeply inspired by Te Whariki ( The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum) and also seeks inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach. The classrooms are unique and aesthetically set up to provide a variety of open ended learning possibilities for children.
Our programme: The learning program is strongly inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.Children are respected as capable and competent . They are encouraged to explore actively and form their own working theories of the world around them. Teachers are co learners and actively engage with the children. Parents are encouraged to actively be part of the learning program.
What do we learn: The focus is on developing social skills which support transition into the wider world. In addition there is a strong focus on self help skills and developing one’s own self esteem.
Transition into our new Center Setting
The teachers, children and families have formed strong relationships with each other. Families are welcomed and settling visits are offered prior to commencement, to provide comfort and familiarisation to families.
Here at Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre, we ensure that the children and families feel welcome, are accepted by their friends and feel secure in their daily routines. We support and encourage children to try new activities, to make new friends, to learn new ways of doing things and to take calculated and supported risks.
Our centre environment enables children to access activities and learning opportunities to participate and engage with their peers and experience success. Children’s exploration through these experiences can be seen displayed around the center.
By displaying children’s work within the center, we are encouraging children to feel accepted and appreciated by everyone. We are showing families that we are proud of what their children are capable of and willing to take our time to help them develop the skills required to feel comfortable within the Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre environment.

This is what our parents say about us:
Cherry: Our family is very grateful that we found BBELC. So far it is the best daycare we have seen. We are glad to enrol our kids here. Having peace of mind that our kids are safe, well fed, looked after and enjoy activities with the teachers and other kids is PRICELESS!!!
THANK YOU for helping my kids explore new things. You are all amazing. Like what I always say to the teacher, I don’t know how you all do it but the teachers here at BBELC are SUPERHEROES!.As parents we feel your passion, dedication and love.
Devika: We are so happy that our son is a part of the Bright Beginnings family. The staff have been so welcoming and caring since the day he joined here. He has the freedom to explore and experiment as he learns about the world around him. With each passing day, he is growing into a confident and independent young boy, while building friendships and learning important life skills. We are also especially happy that he gets nutritious meals everyday, an important concern for us as parents. Most importantly, he loves it so much here that he can’t wait to be back at the Centre every morning! As parents, we can go about our day with the assurance that our son is in good hands within a safe environment. Thank you to the entire BBELC team for th
