Our Philosophy

At Little Blue Penguin, children, educators, parents, whānau and leaders will collaborate to co-design an exceptional programme with the same goal in mind:
Children who are comfortable in their surroundings, happy in their play & confident in their learning.

As a Christchurch-based mum,  passionate early childhood educator, and keen researcher I had a vision to create a truly exceptional and unique learning space for children to learn, grow, discover and develop in a natural, home away from home setting.

Our Community

We are excited to make the most of our wonderful community in Bishopdale. An important part of our programme at Little Blue Penguin is to provide weekly excursions to our local attractions.

Our Core Values

Calmness –  Closeness – Consistency – Curiosity – Confidence

What We Offer

We have an evidence-based approach to teaching and learning in early childhood, high teacher child ratios, nutritious cooked lunches and morning and afternoon snacks, plus more!

Parent Resources

“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count.
Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child”
