Welcome to Kindercare Burwood! My team and I are here to make sure your whānau feel right at home. We believe in partnering with parents to create that essential connection between life at home and at the centre, because it’s not just about meeting your child’s needs; it’s about developing their their full potential. I’m confident that together, we can support your child to learn, grow and thrive in a relaxed and welcoming environment, both indoors and out, surrounded by other tamariki at the same stage of development.
Our nurturing team of Kaiako have been part of our Kindercare team for years, providing consistent care to help settle your child. They’re qualified, experienced, and have an unwavering passion for the care and learning of tamariki in their early years. We’re all about heart-centred care at every stage of your child’s development.
Over the years, we’ve had many families just like yours visit us for the first time and instantly feel safe and settled as they walk through our centre; you might call it a positive gut feeling. So, feel assured that if you’re looking for childcare in your neighbourhood, visit us and experience the Kindercare difference.

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 working together will deeply enrich your child’s preschool years.
- Our operational hours allow us to provide flexible options to suit your family’s needs, with full-time and part-time care.
- Kaiako are passionate about the particular age-group of children they care for, and they absolutely love what they do!
- 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 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 school for your child.
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.
Since 2005, our Burwood childcare centre has been a part of the community, offering a fun-filled learning program that encourages innovative thinking, discovery, and curiosity. Just across the road from Burwood Hospital, our centre is conveniently located for families in Burwood, Shirley, and Parklands.
We look forward to supporting you and your child through these early years.
Life At Our Centre
My son has been at Kindercare Burwood since 8 months old. The teachers are supportive and welcoming. The caring and nurturing environment made me feel at ease when we transitioned into the centre, and I can confidently drop off my son every day. He’s now almost 5yrs old, and I’m very thankful for the safe and loving space that Kindercare has provided.
Our son started at Kindercare Burwood when he was 9 months old. From the first day, we knew we had made the right decision sending him to Kindercare. The Teachers in the nursery were amazing at making sure he was welcomed into the room which helped him settle in very quickly!
It has been incredibly inspiring to watch our special little girl blossom and grow into a beautiful, confident, and knowledgeable five-year-old, all thanks to the team at Kindercare Burwood. Their patience, time, and commitment have made a significant impact on her. We will forever cherish the memories and experiences at Kindercare Burwood in our hearts.
