Topcare Success Leads to Opening of New Auckland Early Learning Centre

Topcare, the Early Childhood Learning specialist, has opened a new centre providing pre-school care and education for children age two – five years of age at state of the art premises in Portage Road, Papatoetoe, South Auckland. The newly licenced early childhood learning centre is now accepting registrations.

The new centre is modelled on the highly popular Topcare Early Childhood Learning Centre at Evelyn Street, Papatoetoe and will cater for up to 55 children.

Topcare founder, Jackie Hui has over 20 years of international experience in early childhood education. She studied for the Diploma of Early Childhood Education at the Manukau Institute of Technology and later graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Auckland. In 2008 she opened the first of the Topcare Early Childhood Learning Centres, which has been highly successful with parents and shortlisted for a number of awards. Jackie has graduated from Auckland University of Technology with a Master of Educational Leadership Degree in 2015.

Jackie says: `My aim at Portage Road Topcare is to make a real difference to our children’s lives by providing top quality care and education in the finest facilities anywhere in South Auckland. What we are building at Topcare is a new model of excellence in New Zealand early childhood education. My educational philosophy is founded on the strength of the relationships between the children, parents and staff built on Trust, Security, Respect, Caring and having fun. I really believe that children learn best when the teachers and parents work together and the children are engaged in experiences that are stimulating and interesting.

‘Topcare practices reflect the multicultural heritage of New Zealand’s community. Topcare’s mission is to educate our children to be the leaders of the future. We treat our tamariki with passion, love and knowledge.’
