Teacher and Pupil

A little about Feathers.

Feathers is a homely, friendly and privately owned and operated child care centre located in Massey West.


We’ve purposefully created an environment that has an abundance of aroha, warmth and passionate professionalism that allows our tamariki to safely explore and learn new things.  Our large outdoor play area is always filled with laughter and fun.


Our longstanding kaiako team is led by Nimei Heald.  With over 20 years ECE experience, Nimei is passionate about learning and ensuring our kaiako are supported so they can provide the best possible care for the tamariki of Feathers.  Our goal is that you are excited about coming to work at Feathers day after day.  

We are proud of our passionate and caring teachers across both our Ngā Kakano (The Seed) and Ngā Puawai (The Blossom) rooms.
