Kia Ora,

If you’re looking for the best daycare in the area, look no further than Kindercare Half Moon Bay. We have been a trusted local childcare centre since 1984, and we pride ourselves on providing outstanding care and education for your child.

I have been the Centre Director here for over 35 years, having had all my children nurtured and cared for in this very centre in their early years. So I understand what families in this fantastic East Auckland area need. From one family to another, you can count on us to meet your needs.

We believe that every child is unique and deserves to be treated as an individual. That’s why my team of experienced, skilled and long-serving Kaiako take the time to observe and get to know your child’s individual strengths and interests, so we can personalise their care and learning plan to develop their full potential.

Our childcare centre is conveniently located for families in Farm Cove, Highland Park, Pakuranga, Sunnyhills, Howick, Half Moon Bay, and Bucklands Beach. So contact us today because I would love to show you around our centre and answer any questions you may have. Let’s work together to achieve every aspiration you have for your child, and more.

With love,
Tracy Cole
Centre Director / Pou Kaitiaki

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.
  • Our operational hours allow us to 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.
  • Our centre offers Sports4Tots (paid for by parents additionally), a weekly program based on active movement.

About Our Care

At Kindercare Half Moon Bay, we provide age-appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to stimulate their senses, nurture their curiosity, and prepare them to be life-long learners. We seek to work in partnership with parents to ensure that each child has the opportunity to become the best version of themselves.

We welcome and encourage parent participation in our centre community, and we are committed delivering 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.

Our beautiful outdoor areas are designed for fun and to spark your child’s curiosity and learning, while our intentional and well-resourced indoor spaces offer a nurturing environment. 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 journey with us through these incredible preschool years.

Join us at Kindercare Half Moon Bay and watch your child thrive!
