Happy Feet Childcare Papamoa
Our purpose built childcare centre in Papamoa Beach provides a ‘home away from home’, nurturing and cosy environment, with spacious outdoor play area with plenty of real, natural grass.
Just round the corner from Golden Sands Primary School, in stunning Papamoa Beach, Happy Feet Childcare offer quality care and early childhood education for local families in the community.
Our daycare centre caters for children aged 0 – 5 years, with dedicated areas for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers, so, your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development. Happy Feet Childcare Papamoa is open 7.30am – 5.30pm, Monday – Friday.
Each child within The Nest (Infant Room) will be assigned a key daycare teacher who, as much as possible, will undertake care routines. We believe that each child deserves the best childcare, and in order for children to develop a sense of trust and security within the Happy Feet environment, we feel it is important that they have at least one person with whom they can create a secure base.
Parents love the rich sense of community, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. It values input from parents, teachers, whānau, children and our wonderful community.

The Hive is a vibrant and creative space for our wonderful toddlers and young children from two years of age.

The Bumble Bees is a homely, dynamic space for our 4-5 year old children where we focus on creativity, mindfulness and well-being as they prepare for school.
We encourage our young learners to reach their full potential by providing opportunities to confidently explore their learning with and alongside others and knowing and being secure in their identity and their place in world.
"I would highly recommend Happy Feet, from when I first went through the doors everyone is so welcoming. The teachers are all so caring, loving and you can tell they really care about the children in their care. They made me feel so comfortable in leaving my son. The centre is well set out and clean with a beautiful big outdoor area. The team here at Happy Feet are amazing!"
"I love that you use natural materials for learning and let the kids learn at their pace, no pressure. Have always been friendly and made me feel comfortable all the time. Keep up the good work!"
"When my kids see the teachers out in public their faces light up and they can’t wait to say hello… this is how I know they love going to Happy Feet."
