Built with creativity, learning and collaboration in mind, Kiddywinkles is a place where your child can explore both their world, and their potential.

A home away from home

In our beautiful, fun environment, your child’s confident, curious and creative mind is nurtured with the same devotion and care that they receive at home. As passionate educators, we facilitate a space where they feel safe to play and explore, safe to be curious, and safe to discover their own sense of self as they learn alongside peers and teachers.

Where wonder grows

Around here, we have a passion for play, we see wonder in the world too, and we celebrate the magic of new discoveries through your child’s eyes. Respect, responsibility and community sit at the heart of our centre’s ethos. This approach is guided by Reggio Emilia principles, an educational philosophy that encourages children to develop through self-directed learning as they discover the world around them.

Inspiring young minds

Growing, together

Kiddywinkles kids play and learn along side others in their own age group, with rooms catering for infants through to six-year-olds. Private, safe and purpose-built, our centre keeps discovery, fun and creative freedom the focus of every day. We know that development happens in many ways, so while learning is self-directed, we provide age-appropriate opportunities in specially designed indoor and outdoor spaces that stretch imaginations and challenge creative thinking.

Not just childcare, but community

Culturally diverse, inclusive and welcoming, Kiddywinkles nurtures a true sense of belonging for all families who become apart of our centre’s community. We embrace and explore cultural identities - infact we have around 15 countries represented across our children and teachers -and our curriculum calls on both English and Te Ao Māori teaching.

Above all else, Kiddywinkles is a place where you’ll be greeted by name, where you can feel confident that your child will thrive, where we celebrate milestones - big and small, and where your child will feel at home, the moment they come through the gate.

“I have always felt very confident having my son in Kiddywinkles. I have watched him develop both mentally and socially with the range of activities they create and the fun he has every day. Both the teachers and admin staff make him feel very welcome from the second he arrives to the moment I pick him up”

Convenience & flexibility

Life’s busy, so we’ve designed our operating hours to better suit the demands of modern family living. We’re open from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, all year round - except for public holidays. You can choose from full days, half days and school-hour days to suit your schedule or preferences.

You can ditch the morning food prep rush; healthy meals are prepared on site and included in your fees for sessions longer than 4 hours. Our fees are dependent on age, however, we are a provider of 20 hours free ECE for children 3-5 years old.

Choosing the right centre is an important decision - for both yourself and your child. So come in and discover what makes Kiddywinkles so special for yourself.
