Our care and learning
Our early childhood centre is more than an early learning centre; we are team of passionate, qualified Kaiako, committed to meeting all of your child’s needs - social, emotional and physical - at every stage of their development. That’s why we offer separate indoor and outdoor learning areas that are designed specifically for your baby, toddler or preschooler, as well as a Transition to School program.

Kiwi Room (babies room)
At Kindercare, we believe that every baby deserves to be cherished. That’s why in our warm, nurturing babies room, your little one comes first. Your pēpi will receive gentle care moments throughout their day and lots of time for smiles, singing, cuddles, and discoveries, indoors and out.
Building trusting, supportive relationships with you and your infant is the foundation of our care. By spending unhurried, quality time with your baby, we get to know their individual rhythm and routine, which enables to build a loving attachment with your child, so they feel safe to explore our sensory-rich world. And by communicating with you every step of the way, we’re able to ensure our care and learning meets your baby’s individual and developmental needs.
Tūī and Kea Rooms (toddlers room)
Toddlerhood is an exciting, active stage of development - which is why we believe in providing a safe environment for your child to explore, try new things and begin to develop a ‘sense of self’.
So, we’ve designed our fun-filled, nurturing environment and routine so it is responsive to how your little one is beginning to see the world around them. Here, your little one will be encouraged and supported through the gentle guidance and affectionate interactions of our qualified Teachers. There are plenty of activities and opportunities for them to be as ‘busy’ as they want to – exploring, making discoveries and playing with their little friends in our safe indoor and outdoor environments.
Pūkeko Room (preschool room)
At this age, we believe in providing tamariki with a safe, creative learning environment where friendships are fostered, language is developed and culture is embraced. In our preschool room, each day is a new, exciting opportunity to have fun learning through play in a loving, nurturing environment. You’ll find that in our centre, we recognise your child’s culture, respond to their educational needs, and keep their routine flexible and consistent, so your preschooler’s sense of belonging enables them to safely explore and make discoveries.
At this stage of development, your child will participate in an interest-based curriculum both indoors and outside, which includes a number of fun-filled programs that foster their social and emotional development through our “You Can Do It” program. For our older preschoolers, we offer a creative, exciting and comprehensive Transition to School program to ensure your child gains the benefit of a smooth transition into kura.
Our world of outdoor play
Movement is at the very heart of your child’s intellectual, social and physical development. That’s why children have daily time (weather permitting) in our safe, separate outdoor spaces, designed to meet the unique needs of our tamariki at each age and stage of development.
