Understanding Kindercare’s Excel Education Program

Everything about your child, at each age and stage of their development, is an original masterpiece, so they deserve care and education that will foster their incredible potential.
That’s why we developed Excel – because this offers your child more than learning innovation – it’s a framework within which the relationship between your child and their teacher is intentionally nurtured.
And when you start with loving, connected, responsive relationships in the early years, this directly benefits your child. Our Excel Education Program is implemented and used in the Babies, Toddlers and Preschool rooms as well as offering a specialised focus for the Transition to School children.
What is the Excel Education Program?
It’s a flexible framework which enables our teachers to observe your child’s interests, needs and strengths – so we get to know your child and focus on building a relationship with them.
From this, a plan is then developed to support your child’s individual learning, at each stage of their development. Extensive research preceded the introduction of Kindercare’s Excel Education Program, culminating in the development of this framework, which incorporates New Zealand’s national early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki.
Another valuable feature of Excel is that it provides ongoing opportunities for you, as parents and families, to contribute to your child’s learning – because when you’re involved, your child benefits.
At Kindercare, learning is about achieving specific outcomes for YOUR child, through play!

Our Childcare Journey

In 1972, a loving mother opened our first early childhood centre. Four decades on, we’re still family owned and the strength of those same family values, the warmth of familiarity and the meaningful personal connections are still distinctively at the heart of Kindercare. That’s the reason our centres feel like "home" to the children and families we love.
