At Kindercare Kohimarama, we understand that the preschool years of a child’s life are crucial in shaping their future. And we’re committed to supporting you as parents during these years. We know that raising a child while juggling all of life’s demands can be tough. So we’re here to help make things a little easier for you and your whānau.
My team and I want you to feel confident in your decision to trust us with your child’s care. We invite you to visit us as many times as you need to get a good feel of what a day at our centre looks like.
Don’t hesitate to contact us; we’d love nothing more than to support your childcare needs and we’re more than happy to guide you through this fun and exciting learning journey that is early childhood. We are conveniently located for families in Mission Bay, St Heliers , Kohimarama, and Orakei.
Let’s work together to give your child a winning start in life!

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’re big on movement and play through a variety of fun and active experiences, because as Gill Connell says, “a moving child is a learning child”.
- We emphasise social-emotional development because we recognise the significance of fostering a positive sense of self-worth and developing strong relationships with friends.
- 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.
About Our Care
Childcare at our centre is designed to meet whānau aspirations and the needs of each child, with age-appropriate activities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers throughout their day. We embrace diversity and creating an environment that serves a multicultural centre community, where your child can participate in fun-filled and challenging learning experiences that are tailored to their stage of development.
We also understand that settling into a daycare centre can be a overwhelming for you and your child, so we’re here to make it as easy as possible for your whānau. Our team will work with you to create a plan that ensures your family feels safe, loved, happy and secure in their new environment. We value strong partnerships and supportive relationships with parents—we’re all about whanaungatanga at Kindercare Kohimarama; since 1990.
To foster great relationships within our centre community, we regularly host events, such as themed days, family picnics, children’s performances, and sports afternoons to provide opportunities for you to connect with us and other parents. These events are also a great way to have fun with your child and stay informed of their learning progress.
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
Life At Our Centre
Vanessa and Aaron
Kindercare Kohimarama have been amazing for our family. I went back to work when our son was 9 months old, and it was a huge comfort to know he was in such good hands in the babies' room. The Teachers in the babies' room and now the toddlers' room have been marvellous, creating a lovely environment for our son and his friends to play and learn.
Caroline and Ondrej
At Kindercare Kohimarama, not only is our son extremely well-cared for, but also loved. The affection he shows for his Teachers speaks volumes about the genuine relationship that exists between Teachers and children. He gets to experience a far wider array of activities than he would at home! The support we’ve received as parents has been an invaluable part of our relationship with the centre and has far exceeded our expectations.
Zelda and Heinrich
Since moving our son to Kindercare Kohimarama, we noticed a significant change in his behaviour. He also gets the structure a busy little boy like him needs. He still gets to play and express himself as an individual but in a much more one-on-one time with his Teachers. Because of the love, care and guidance he receives at Kindercare, we’re all much happier with his development.
