Childcare that begins
and ends with loving care

Why Choose Kindercare

Simply put, it's because our daycare centres offer outstanding early childhood education. But here are some other reasons:

Flexible Hours

Our operational hours allows us to provide flexible options to suit your family's needs, with full-time and part-time care.

Loving Care

We seek to develop each child's full potential by keeping them safe, loved and learning throughout their day.

Tailored Approach

We provide specialised care for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, each with learning programs to fuel their growth and development

Kai Included

We serve three meals a day; meals are plant-based through a whole foods approach, and are prepared with care to fuel growing minds and little bodies.

Generous Annual Leave

We offer a generous leave policy because we understand the unpredictability of children's absences due to illness or simply because families choose to have a holiday together and won't be needing our service.

Family Services 

We partner with families to provide individualised support because we want the best for you, and your child.

Our philosophy is simple: because children matter.

Kindercare Learning Centre

Age groups we care for


We understand what matters to you most is that your infant feels safe, loved, and respected in a soothing environment that feels like home. So our teams are committed to providing responsive, nurturing care as your pēpi learns through movement and moments.


Our toddler rooms offer a relaxed atmosphere where your child is encouraged to be curious, to explore, and grow their emerging self-help skills. Toddlers are energetic so our team provides care and learning through a fun-filled curriculum in a safe and relaxed environment.


Our preschool learning spaces are intentionally designed to spark curiosity and foster children's exploration and wonder. We will introduce your preschooler to early literacy, numeracy, social and emotional capabilities, teaching them to love learning altogether.

What parents say about us

Kindercare has been a second home for 7 years now and we couldn't be more happier with the love, care and comfort they provide for us and our children. They’ve supported us parents to get through hard times, and accommodating our needs. Knowing this is a safe haven to our children, allows us to do the mahi, with ease.

Marama from Kindercare Tawa

The loving, caring and nurturing team at Kindercare has been a Godsend to our family. Without an extended family in NZ they have become our second family. My daughter has flourished, becoming confident and resilient. It is such a blessing to know that my daughter is so loved, is learning in a fun environment and is becoming confident and resilient.

Assil from Kindercare Flagstaff

I couldn’t ask for a better centre for my child. The premises are lovely, with attention and care taken in the building design selection of toys, activities, outdoor area, sleeping arrangement and activity rooms. It’s so comforting knowing that my son receives nothing but love and care from the team at Kindercare each day.
