Kindercare Botany Downs
At Kindercare Botany Downs, we believe that supporting families is integral to helping tamariki reach their full potential. Our commitment to you as whānau is that we will provide an environment that keeps your child safe, loved and learning.
We embrace our multicultural heritage, both as a team and with our families. Our diversity enables us to assist new families who are new to kiwi culture in this vibrant East Auckland community.
We know that when you visit our centre, you will feel that warmth and friendliness, and that you will decide to join our Kindercare family.

Why Choose Our Centre
Simply put, it’s because we offer outstanding early childhood care and learning. But here are a few other great reasons:
- We desire to work in partnership with whānau, because we believe families who contribute actively to their child’s learning goals, will deeply enrich their preschool years.
- We love celebrations! Throughout the year, we intentionally plan for and learn about celebrations that reflect the cultural diversity of our centre community.
- We provide flexible options to suit your family’s needs, with full-time and part-time care.
- Kai is included. We provide high-quality plant-based whole-food meals for tamariki—all cooked on-site and prepared with love.
- We offer a generous leave policy because we understand the unpredictability of children’s absences.
About Our Care
At Kindercare Botany Downs, we provide age-appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to stimulate their senses, nurture their curiosity, and prepare them for primary schooling. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that each child has the opportunity to develop their full potential, and we welcome and encourage parent participation in our centre community.
Our centre is committed to providing responsive and respectful care for each child. We invite parents to share their family news, give us feedback, and collaborate with us on their child’s individual learning plan and goals. Together, we can create a successful pathway to kura for your child.
Since 1998, we have been a part of the community, offering a fun-filled learning program that encourages innovative thinking and discovery. Our centre is conveniently located for families in Golflands, Somerville, and Botany Downs.
We understand that families have different childcare needs, and we would love to discuss them with you. This enables us to provide a tailored approach to your child’s care, learning and fees, to support their growth.
We look forward to supporting you and your child on their incredible journey with us through these early years.
Life At Our Centre
Kindercare Botany Downs is an extremely warm, loving place where we’re always welcomed with a ready smile and made to feel at ease when dropping off our boys. Our boys thrive in their Teachers’ care, and so enjoy the stimulation and fun-filled activities in such a great environment. I am very grateful for the peace of mind that our children are in such good hands.
From day one, the girls were relaxed and happy to go to Kindercare each morning. The Teachers are friendly and loving and my girls have also made lots of special friends along the way that we continue to keep in contact with. I highly recommend Kindercare because it's a place where children are treated with respect and love with lots of smiles.
I walked into Kindercare Botany Downs with my then 18-month old, a little desperate, as the last centre refused because of my son's developmental delay. Without hesitation, Kindercare said yes reassuringly. My son has thrived in this loving, caring and supportive environment and we'll always be grateful to the team who are not only good at what they do but also live their values.
