Welcome to Little Sunbeams!

We are a fully registered Centre licenced for 30 children between the ages of  2-5.  For the past fifteen years we have been serving Papakura by providing childcare to the families of our local community.

We run a Christian based programme and want the children to understand that God loves and cares for them. We aim to provide a variety of interesting, challenging, and educational play choices for your child to have fun with, to learn through their play, and acquire self-help skills to prepare them for school.

The programme includes a balance of child and teacher initiated activities which encourages choice, independence and decision-making.

“We are so thankful for the year that our son was able to spend at Little Sunbeams Christian Preschool. In that year he has grown in many ways: He is more confident when speaking in front of a group (sharing news) and has learnt to interact with other children rather than just a select few. He has learnt to tidy up after himself without the usual complaining (this occurred within a few weeks of starting!) and has learnt not to be so self-conscious when it comes to singing/performing.

“He was always very keen to attend Preschool, and so we knew that he was enjoying himself and being well looked after.

“As parents, we greatly appreciated the friendly, caring manner, and also the firmness of the teaching staff. Most importantly, we loved the underlying Christian message promoted at Little Sunbeams, which is the main reason we chose to send our boy there!”
