- healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks to fuel your child’s play and learning

Because every child has different needs, we ask that you supply your child’s own bottles, formula and nappies for each day.

At Kindercare Auckland CBD, you’ll find that we partner with you from the very beginning to ensure the best possible care and learning for your child’s needs.
Why choose our centre?
Providing safe, loving and supportive care since 2002, our centre is designed to care for your child from infancy until they are ready for primary school. Your child will be cared for alongside children of a similar age and stage of development, in vibrant play and learning areas – both indoors and out. Each environment is intentionally planned to provide the nurturing care, creative learning and social opportunities best suited for your child’s individual needs.
Our care and learning
At Kindercare Auckland CBD, we customise our care and learning for your little one from the start, through our Excel Education program. We take the time to recognise their individual interests, needs and strengths, then create a personalised care and learning plan. From here, your child will enjoy taking part in a range of carefully selected play-based activities that speak to their developmental stage. Through these, they’ll have the opportunity to develop their reflexes; vision and hearing; sensory and spatial awareness; direction; midline; recognition of pattern; and memory. All of this will set your child up for success in school and beyond.
And we’ll always keep you up to speed on your child’s progress and everything happening at our eventful centre, through our Educa online portfolios.
We also regularly bring you and our team together to welcome new families and enjoy an unhurried catchup with our educators. Such events include picnics at Silo Park; Father’s and Mother’s Day celebrations; parent evenings and our annual Christmas parties.
Finally, we pride ourselves on celebrating the rich diversity of all our centre families. So you’ll definitely want to pencil Kindercare in for Matariki, Chinese New Year, Diwali, Easter and Christmas celebrations.
Kiwi and Ruru Rooms (Babies Rooms)
We believe babies should always feel safe, loved and respected - with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. And that’s what our Babies Rooms are all about. Our devoted educators will provide nurturing, immediate care for your little one within a calm and settled environment. They’ll also involve them in fun-filled activities shaped around their developmental needs, thanks to our ‘Care and Play’ curriculum. Given the space and freedom to explore safely, your baby will receive various sensory-rich learning experiences as they discover their world at their own pace. And you’ll be with us, every little step of the way: our open-door policy allows you to visit your infant any time of day for a cuddle, a feed, or to check in if they’ve been unwell. Moreover, we document your child’s personal journey and progress each day through their own journal and online portfolio.
Kea and Tūī Rooms (Toddlers Rooms)
Your toddler’s curiosity and developmental needs are growing at the speed of light - and if anyone can keep up, it’s the devoted educators of our Toddlers Rooms. Here, we foster even more joy and discovery in your toddler’s learning journey through our ‘Care and Play’ curriculum. This allows your child to safely enjoy developing foundational skills indoors and out. They’ll do this through active explorations, music and movement, and other sensory-rich learning experiences. And by fostering strong, trusting relationships with you and your toddler, we ensure they receive the best loving care and learning for their needs.
Pūkeko, Kākāpo and Kōtuku Rooms (Preschool Rooms)
We understand your child’s growing need for independence and self-help skills as they approach school age. And what better way to learn them than through fun-filled activities in our Preschool Rooms? Our safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere allows your child to enjoy interest-based activities that foster a love of learning while preparing them for our Transition to School program. Using our ‘project’ approach, we help your child explore and understand their world through conversations, questions and research. As they become eager to learn, help, participate and share their discoveries, your child will further develop the confidence, independence and self-help skills needed for school and beyond.
As part of their preparation for school, we also guide your preschooler through delightful early literacy, phonics, and digital technology programs. While helping your child build capabilities in these highly relevant areas, we respectively strengthen their emotional and social skills through our character-driven ‘You Can Do It’ program, small-group library visits and exciting class excursions.
Our world of outdoor play
Movement is at the very heart of your child’s intellectual, social and physical development. For this reason, we’re proud to offer safe, expansive outdoor playgrounds where your child can play, explore, discover and make friends through physical activity. All of this, while growing as confident, capable individuals.
A little about our team
At Kindercare Auckland CBD, qualified, multicultural team is committed to offering a learning environment where your child feels safe, loved and respected - every day. After all, when children feel secure in their environment, they become self-motivated to embrace and explore the world around them. And that’s of course, how they learn.
Our team also believes in maintaining strong, meaningful relationships with you, too. Because together, we can help your child reach their full potential.
So when we say we’re here for you at Kindercare Auckland CBD, we truly mean it: from the first day you carry your little one through our doors, to the day they leave on their own two feet, for school.
Our open-door policy is our way of saying ‘you matter’ – and that’s why we’ll always make time for you at Kindercare – Auckland CBD.
Parents and families are warmly welcomed to pop in at any time during the day to visit us, have a look around, and get a feel for our lovely centre. You’ll have the opportunity to meet some of our wonderful teaching teams, plus see our rooms, resources and spacious outdoor areas.
