Learn to love to learn...  

The Karaka Learning Centre has its own philosophy in educational priorities: Learn to love to learn
and all within an environment that encourages holistic development, self esteem, confidence, independence, that will prepare children for school and life.

Being an Early Childhood teacher, it is not only a pleasure but a privilege to invest in little lives.

This was David Wright’s privilege to be part of hundreds of children’s lives since 1986.

‘I’ve discovered that you can stimulate and accelerate the learning experience for young children even as early as three months!
Karaka evolved as a result of our own experience with our children and the same passion we now invest in the lives of many children whose parents allow us this privilege.’  David Wright.

The uniqueness of the Karaka centre and the excellent services of our well trained staff, contributes to your child being well prepared to love to learn.

Karaka Learning Centre is one of the largest collection of centres on one site. We have also been operating early childhood centres from the site for 27 years.

1. Karaka’s centre’s play areas are all well in access of ministry requirements.
2. The children’s encounter with animals give them confidence.
3. The large internal pool area and daily swimming activities provides extraordinary facilities.
4. Stable and well trained staff.
