Inspiring Environments

When you walk into The Cat’s Pyjamas you will see that we are passionate about creating beautiful, peaceful and natural environments for our children.

Our Centres are modern, purpose built facilities. We provide an extensive range of resources to assist in capturing children’s curiosity and growing their minds.  We believe in the power of nature and are proud of our beautiful outdoor spaces.  


Children are naturally motivated to play. Our play-based programme builds on this motivation, using play as a context for learning. In this context, children can explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in imaginative and playful ways.


Care and education at The Cat’s Pyjamas is a collaborative process. Children, teachers, whānau and the community constantly engage to reflect on the aspirations and learning outcomes for all children. At The Cat’s Pyjamas, children, whānau and teachers are respected, valued and honoured.
