Ko te manu e kai ana I te miro nona te ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana I te matauranga nona te ao.
The bird that eats the miro berry, his is the forest. The bird that eats education, his is the world.
This whakatauki reflects our belief in the wonder of early childhood and the importance of the natural environment.

Our daughter has been at sunshine for a couple of months now and we are really happy with how she has settled in. She genuinely seems so happy to be there and is changing and learning so much since starting. Thanks so much to the wonderful teachers in the Koru room, [our daughter] loves you guys and it’s made the transition of returning to work much easier.

My son started at sunshine just after he turned two , he was reluctant at first but his teachers reassured him and welcomed him with open arms.
From then on he has enjoyed his time at sunshine and made some great friendships with his peers.
I enjoyed receiving his weekly art and seeing pictures of what he has been up to on facebook.
He has grown in so many ways since joining and we are so happy we chose sunshine as his daycare while I was working on te rapa.
The healthy meals supplied was an extra great bonus!!!
Thank you for having us over the years, we will miss you all !!
