Curiate was born from a passion for beautifully crafted, intelligent resources that are designed to inspire children – encouraging curiosity and open-ended play.

We have been in operation for 5 years (formerly as New Shoots Educational Resources). We’re owned and operated by New Zealand ECE professionals and we have direct day-to-day contact with some of New Zealand’s top early childhood centres. This means that we understand high quality resourcing, and how important it is to you.

All of our resources are hand-picked by experienced early childhood professionals.

We sell beautiful, child focused resources of the highest quality, with the WOW factor.

If you come to us for resourcing, your centre will look and feel beautiful, and help to keep your children engaged. Our resources are picked by people with solid experience in the ECE sector. Everything we sell is tried and tested.

We’re constantly seeking out new and interesting resources to help keep you and your children engaged.

We are committed to sustainable and ethical sourcing.

We are experienced in fitting out centres of every size and budget.

Our resources are smart and stimulating, with plenty of curiosity and open ended play.

We operate on local distribution, and our service is quick and friendly, with a personal touch.

Curiosity comes naturally to children, it is one of the key driving forces of intellect,  young brains thrive on new experiences that can be offered through a range of well curated resources.
