I became a teacher because it was important to me that I was making a difference in my community. Everyday as I walk through this centre, I see that same passion expressed through the actions of the Kaiako here. My team and I understand the importance of secure, loving relationships and respectful care, for your child— especially during these early years. We also know the impact a fun-loving approach to learning and a positive attitude can have on children’s growth, determination and incredible potential. So we’re big on encouraging tamariki in their successes here at Kindercare Frankton.
Through respect, whanaungatanga, and a culture of kindness, we aim to promote a sense of belonging and well-being within our tamariki, our whānau, and the community.

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 actively contribute 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 center community.
- Our operational hours allow us to provide flexible options to suit your family’s needs, including 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
At Kindercare Frankton, we provide age-appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to stimulate their senses, nurture their curiosity, and prepare them for primary schooling. 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 kura for your child.
Since 2009, we have been a part of the community, offering a fun-filled learning program that encourages innovative thinking, discovery, and curiosity. Our centre is conveniently located for families in Frankton, Dinsdale, Whitiora and Maeroa.
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 incredible journey with us through these early years.
Life At Our Centre
Our oldest son spent most of his preschool time at Kindercare Frankton, and was so ready for school by the time he was five years old. Now our youngest is at Kindercare and he is thriving, loving the activities, routines and outdoor area—some days he doesn’t want to come home! Knowing he is safe and enjoying himself helps make the morning drop-off a little easier.
We thoroughly recommend Kindercare Frankton as a childcare centre! They live up to their values of Safe, Loved and Learning, and the standard of care is excellent. Children are well supported through each stage of their journey at Kindercare, and parents are kept well informed. Our children are happy, and we are very satisfied with our experience at Kindercare.
We enrolled our daughter at Kindercare Frankton when she was 18 months old. The journey has been a wonderful experience for her, as she has been nurtured and encouraged by her teachers. We have watched her grow into a confident, well-rounded girl who is ready for her next adventure—school. The Kindercare team are warm, friendly, caring and treat us like one big family.
