Centre Fit-Outs

If you come to us for resourcing, your centre will not only look and feel beautiful, it will help to keep your children engaged and excited. Our resources are handpicked by professional New Zealand Early Childhood Educators to ensure you the highest quality of toys and resources.

Our Fit-Out Process

1. Your Vision

We work to find the best expression of your vision. At the initial consultation with our fit-out expert, we want to hear tour story and vision-what is important to you and your curriculum? We ask the right questions to inform our curation while working together to create a centre that expresses your identity.

2. Curated Proposal

We create a curated proposal and quotation, in line with your vision and budget while meeting the ministry standards. We also apply superior price structuring to that on our website and in our catalogue. Our fit-out expert will present our offering in person, where possible. We also offer various payment options.

3. Packing Your Order

Upon acceptance of the proposal, we work within your timeframes. You’ll receive support from our fit-out expert with end to end management of your order. We make use of organised and methodical packaging to aid a seamless end to end process. One delivery, on one day, packed by one company.

4. Setup Support

We offer on-site support on the delivery and unpacking day, where possible. We also offer ongoing support and the peace of mind that you maintain the same price structuring for future purchases at the curated centre.

Some of our work

We chose to use Curiate for all resources for the new centre given the quality of their range, especially the extent of wooden resources. I felt that the range for us was well selected for a quality centre and provided the perfect base for us to build from. The service was great and I can’t thank them enough.

Todd Painter - Centre Director,
Borman Village Kids

We used Curiate to fit out our new centre recently and had a great experience. It was our first centre  and the recommendations they made for our resources were excellent. Their communication throughout and follow up service has been fantastic. We have been very happy with the quality of the resources and would happily recommend Curiate to other centres.

Gumboots and Grasshoppers

In November, last year I opened two new Centres. I purchased all our resources from Curiate and have been delighted with the variety and
quality of the resources. The Ministry of Education commented on how well our Centres were resourced and we will have no hesitation using this company to resource our two new Centres. This company offers a
personal service where no problem is too small or too large. All our resources were delivered on time and packed and labelled clearly for each of our rooms, this made our setup so easy. I also found the pricing was very competitive and the goods were of a superior quality to what I had used in the past.
