Early childhood care and education

Established in 1994, we are passionate about providing families with quality early childhood care and education for pre-school children.

Children learn best when they feel confident in their environment and with someone who knows them. Bright Futures early childhood care and education, for 0-5 year olds, is about giving your child a secure, familiar and nurturing relationship with a consistent, professional Educarer who is dedicated to enhancing their learning in their early years.

We have three branches in Napier (head office), Hastings and Waipukurau where Educarers provide ECE to children across Hawke’s Bay. We build responsive and respectful relationships with children we care for and their families.

Bright Futures complies with all MOE regulations and provides low teacher to child ratios (no more than 1:4) meaning better care and more attention for your child. We offer parents very flexible hours of care.

Children are offered spontaneity, fun and the ability to explore their world at their own pace; both at home and out and about in the community. Children’s social interactions are fully supported with frequent playgroups, plenty of excursions and impromptu gatherings such as story time at the library or a picnic in the park on a sunny day.

Our team of Educarers care for your child in their own home providing a nurturing and safe environment where children thrive. Bright Futures Educarers are supported by a team of qualified and registered Visiting Teachers.

Bright Futures is a service under the umbrella of Napier Family Centre – a large not for profit social service organisation.

“Bright Futures childcare and learning is a service of Napier Family Centre, an award winning not for profit social service agency. Any surpluses we make go right back in, to help provide a better service to our local communities.”
