Pipis is a clean, spacious, purpose built childcare centre with plenty of room for outdoor adventures. A place where children are encouraged to care for, respect and nurture our gardens, animals and each other.

We are locally owned with a fully qualified, warm, professional teaching team who enjoy the rewards of working with families to support children to be happy, healthy, independent young learners.

Pipis is a mixed age centre providing for children from 12 months to 5 years. We celebrate and encourage relationships where younger children learn from older siblings and peers, and older children develop leadership skills.

Pipis prepares children for school in the heart of our special Tutukaka Coast community. Attendance at our centre will allow you and your child to develop relationships with other children and their parents that you will take with you to school and beyond.

In 2021 Coastal Care celebrated 30 years of service and assistance to anyone in need of help in our local Tutukaka Coast area.
We are a group of Hospice-trained volunteers that assist elderly, injured, lonely, or ill residents by visiting, providing outings, company or transport when required, for a small donation to cover petrol costs.
There is a wide range of mainly mobility equipment for short term loan e.g. wheelchairs, walking aids, shower stools, commodes, and again donations help us to maintain and extend our range of equipment.
