Kauri Kids Beach Haven is a purpose-built building situated in Shepherds Park in Beach Haven. We run a child- and teacher-led programme for tamariki in our mixed- age setting and have provided education and care for children in Beach Haven for many years.
We embrace and encourage tuakana-teina relationships within our centre, where older children support and help their younger peers.
Kauri Kids is inclusive of all children including those with special needs, and we have long standing contacts with the special education service.
Our four long-standing, trained staff members live locally and have a good knowledge of our culturally diverse community. We are licensed for 30 children with a maximum of eight under-two year olds and 22 over-two year olds. Children can attend up to three days during the week, some for morning or afternoon sessions.
We know our children and their families well and use this knowledge to support successful transitions into the centre and onto school. We have great working relationships with the local primary schools in our area.
The centre’s philosophy acknowledges Te Tiriti o Waitangi as a guiding document for providing children with programmes that reflect New Zealand’s bicultural heritage.
All Kauri Kids childcare centres are committed to Te Whāriki, the New Zealand early childhood curriculum, and offer 20 hours free ECE. WINZ subsidies may also be available for your family. Visit the WINZ website for more information.
