Our teachers have been carefully selected to ensure your child receives the very best in care, love, nurture and knowledge.

Kenina & Allen

With a passion for early childhood education and development, and with three boys of their own, Kenina and Allen Court are committed to making a difference in the lives of your young children as they embark on their journey toward school.

Allen has business experience across a wide range of industries including retail, property, manufacturing, marketing and mentoring. With a BCom and an Associate of the NZ Institute of Management, Allen now is focussed on delivering a service of excellence that gives you peace of mind knowing your child is in a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment.

Kenina is a partner in an Accounting firm, Pathfinder Solutions she established and is a Fellow of Chartered Accountants, an honour bestowed on a select number of recognised Accountants across NZ and Australia. Kenina’s involvement in Kiddywinkles is both strategic and financial.

Both Allen and Kenina love the teaching philosophy of this centre and now with an excellent team of qualified Teachers, teachers in training and passionate relievers, Kiddywinkles is poised to become the Early learning Centre of choice in West Auckland.

For all our wonderful families who currently enjoy Kiddywinkles, we love having you as part of our extended family.
