Take a tour of our Kauri kids

Conveniently located within the Howick Leisure Centre, Howick Kauri Kids is designed around the needs of your pre-school children. Bring your children in for full day, part day or casual care and relax, knowing they’re in the care of trained early childhood educators.

Howick Kauri Kids offers a variety of learning and development opportunities. It features a large indoor environment and friendly multicultural staff who are dedicated to a safe and stimulating environment.

We are licensed for 50 children (15 under two years of age and 35 over two years of age).

Our programme is based in accordance with Te Whāriki, the New Zealand early childhood curriculum, and we integrate it into all aspects of our children’s learning.

Kauri Kids centres offer 20 hours free ECE. WINZ subsidies may also be available for your family. Visit the WINZ website for more information.

Here’s what one of our parents had to say about Howick Kauri Kids:

“My two year old daughter has been attending Kauri Kids for nearly six months now. At the start, morning drop-offs were a bit teary and stressful but the staff were always able to greet us by name with a big cuddle and a fun activity to distract and engage my child. She is learning to socialise and to follow instructions and now I have trouble getting her to leave! I love the flexible hours on offer which helps a lot with my changing work schedule, and feel confident in recommending this centre to other parents.”
