I am delighted to welcome you to Kindercare Spreydon, where we prioritise building strong parent-partnerships and creating a loving home away from home environment for your whānau. We value mnaaki mana and reciprocal relationships with both you and your child, and we desire to provide a nurturing environment filled with kindness, generosity, care and respect.
We believe in the importance of play in children’s learning and we offer nature play, heuristic, and open-ended experiences; we embrace each child’s uniqueness and affirm that they can be powerful creators of their own learning journey. We are also intentional about fostering their positive self-esteem, social and emotional development, and self-confidence. We believe providing creative and unhurried experiential opportunities that align with their interests, it encourages a love for learning within tamariki.
Our team values aroha, ako, humour, pono or sincerety, and learning. We invite you and your family to visit our daycare centre at any time. Meet our team and experience the Kindercare difference. We know you’ll love it here!

- Our operational hours allows us to provide flexible options to suit your family’s needs, with full-time and part-time care.
- We’re located very close to Christchurch CBD, on an easy bike pathway and we’re on an arterial route making it easy for drop-offs and pick-ups.
- We’re big on providing parents with the support you may need in these early parenting years, including practical tools to foster resilience and positive behaviour.
- Kai is included. We provide high-quality plant-based whole-food meals for tamariki—all cooked on-site and prepared with love.

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. With three classrooms catering to different age groups, we ensure that every child’s unique needs and interests are met.
We pride ourselves on our holistic transition to school program, setting up children for success in their pathway to kura. We also understand the importance of fostering a love of learning from a young age so our curriculum revolves around play-based learning, recognising that play is a child’s work. Through engaging activities and experiences, we build a strong foundation of skills that will benefit your child not only during their time with us but also in their future education.
Kindercare Spreydon has been providing safe, loving care and learning since 2004. We cherish every child as unique and precious, and it is our privilege to partner with you in supporting their learning and development. From sensory-rich environments for babies to exciting discoveries in our toddlers room and the development of friendships and resilience in our preschool program, our dedicated team is committed to providing a second-mile service in keeping your child safe, loved and learning. Our relaxed environment offer plenty of variety and opportunities for play, ensuring that your child has fun while growing and learning.
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 are conveniently located for families in Spreydon, Sydenham, Beckenham, Somerfield, and Waltham. And we look forward to supporting you and your child on their incredible journey with us through these early years.
Life At Our Centre
Jane and Matt
Our children have attended Kindercare since they were a year old. We've witnessed the children thrive at Kindercare. Their social and educational development has been amazing and has set them up really well for the transition to school. We have had great relationships with all the Teachers and leaders and we're forever grateful to your team for everything you've have done for our family.
Neal and Rayna
Kindercare Spreydon has been such a wonderful and positive place for my daughter. She now can express herself well, regulate her emotions and show care towards others. We can tell these are real precious things in her life. The teachers are so welcoming, caring and always have a smile on their face; Leonie is fabulous and so knowledgeable. We highly recommend Kindercare Spreydon!
Kaiako here always brighten my day. They are so happy to see me and my girls in the mornings. They care for my children as I would, and teach them the most amazing things. My girls always come home either with fabulous stories about what they have learnt that day, or singing a new song. I know my girls will be well prepared for school and for life with the learning and opportunities they are given here.
