Happy times Again!
We are now open for children who require us, we are following intense Health & Safety measures to keep our staff and students safe.


An environment for children offering Love, Learn, Laugh.
Opened in early 2014, Li’l Champs Papatoetoe is conveniently located on Great South Road and boasts plenty of off-street parking. Handy to Papatoetoe and Manukau, our centre feeds into several local schools.

Our Papatoetoe Centre offers three spacious rooms which infants, toddlers and preschool children transition between during their learning journey. Our large outdoor play areas provide further opportunities for your child to develop and learn.
