Kindercare Mairangi Bay
Welcome to Kindercare Mairangi Bay! Our team of long serving Teachers work in partnership with you our parents and whānau, to foster a strong sense of belonging for tamariki in our care. We’re intentional about creating calm, nature-inspired play spaces within our generous sized environments where tamariki are safe, loved and learning.
Kaiako actively encourage children’s creativity and curiosity through a responsive inquiry-based curriculum where the focus is on fun. For our youngest children, our experienced infant and toddler Teachers work to provide an atmosphere of quiet and respectful care working in partnership with you every step of the way. I take pride in it being a centre where kindness and second mile service is at the heart of all that we do. Rest assured, your precious child is in safe, loving hands.
We celebrate whānau because you matter, and we seek to be supportive and flexible to all families in or centre community. We are conveniently located for families in Mairangi Bay, Rosedale, Sunnynook, and Windsor. Please know that you are welcome anytime to visit and we look forward to seeing you soon.

About Our Care
Kindercare Mairangi Bay established in 1993, places the child is at the heart of everything we do. Our approach is based on whanaungatanga and respectful care, which creates a sense of mana whenua and manakitanga among our team, tamariki, and whānau. We view all tamariki as capable and confident learners, recognizing each child’s individuality, uniqueness, and whakapapa. Our experienced and qualified Kaiako create intentional care and learning plans for each child, understanding that children learn and develop in different ways.
At this Mairangi Bay childcare centre, our program is designed to meet the aspirations of whānau and the needs of each child, with age-appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers throughout the day. We also provide opportunities for tamariki to make choices and decisions about their learning, nurturing their self-belief, confidence, as well as social and emotional competencies. We recognize that these are all crucial to setting each child up for success in their schooling years, and more importantly, in life.
Understanding that “the body teaches the brain”, our center is purpose-built with generously sized environments that lay a foundation for meaningful pathways for future learning. Our Kaiako encourage children’s creativity and curiosity through responsive inquiry-based learning, using natural resources and loose parts to provoke innovation.
Our teaching team is skilled at implementing strategies to support inclusive practices and provide equitable outcomes for all children. We have a keen passion for supporting diverse learners and have excellent relationships with education support workers, speech and language therapists, and Oranga Tamariki.
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. Kai is also included. We provide high-quality plant-based whole-food meals for tamariki—all cooked on-site and prepared with love. Plus, our gardens provide hands-on learning experiences for tamariki about where kai comes from and encourage healthy eating habits.
Life At Our Centre
I couldn’t let my son’s departure from Kindercare go without writing to you, to let you know how wonderful the Teachers are. They are all incredible with a wealth of knowledge. They have made my parenting journey a lot easier. Looking forward to this coming year and sharing my son’s experiences in a different room.
Having looked at many other daycares for my boys, as soon as I arrived at Kindercare Mairangi Bay, I knew it was the one! The team always make time to talk to, understand and nurture the children as unique individuals. I truly believe every person is there as a chosen vocation—not just a job. The support the children and parents receive from everyone is so commendable.
Our family has been with Kindercare for the past 16 years with all four our children attending Kindercare Mairangi Bay. Our biggest compliment would be the confidence that our children receive the best learning experience available every day at Kindercare.
