Birkdale Kauri Kids is a small family-oriented early childhood education centre licensed for 22 children. Located in an outdoor space, the centre features a large covered, all-weather sandpit and a child-sized whare complete with carvings. It also features artwork created by our children.
Based on the North Shore, we serve the local multi-cultural community that surrounds us. We provide a challenging and stimulating environment that is welcoming to adults and a mixed-age group of children from one to five years old. We promote strong partnerships with parents/whanau and caregivers and acknowledge their role as primary caregivers.
We offer great teacher-child ratios with experienced teachers passionate about their job. We provide resources for children to build on their strengths and encourage independent and original thinking through self-directed play. We encourage children to relate positively to each other, to be actively engaged in their own learning, to have fun and respect nature.
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.
Here’s what some of our parents had to say about Birkdale Kauri Kids:
My two boys have both enjoyed Birkdale Kauri Kids. I really like the community feel, and getting to know parents and children in our neighbourhood. Staff, one of whom looked after our children on our wedding night, are friendly, warm and welcoming.
Thank you so much for being my daughter’s teachers. We really appreciate your care, calm manner and awesome teaching. She has loved her time here and we look forward to seeing more of you next year with our son.
– Amy and Nick
