Clendon Kauri Kids welcomes and values the diversity within our centre. We recognise the unique bicultural heritage founded in the Te Tiriti O’Waitangi and believe that our children have a right to experience the languages, music, art, and stories of Aotearoa.

Our programme is based on the interests of our children. We recognise each child as an individual and encourage curiosity and exploration as valued ways of learning.

Activities that the children enjoy include gymnastics and story time at the local library.

Our families are an important part of the centre as valued partners in their children’s growth and development. We encourage our families to spend time with us in the centre and share their cultural heritage.

Together we believe that quality learning is one of the foundation stones of the Early Childhood Curriculum (MOE, 1996).

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 parent had to say about Clendon Kauri Kids:

It’s been more than a year since my daughter started attending this childcare. The staff are friendly and caring towards kids.

– Komal

I have three children attending the centre at Clendon. I like the centre because the friendly staff are able to communicate in my language.

Out of school care (OSCAR)

Not sure what to do with the kids before and after school? Book them into out of school care (OSCAR) at Te Matariki Clendon Community Centre and Library and we’ll take care of them for you! It’s affordable and easy – we drop your kids off in the morning and pick them up again in the afternoon from selected local schools. While at the centre we give them afternoon tea and provide activities, sports, reading, homework space and arts and crafts for them to get involved in.

Out of school care is available from 7-9am and 3-6pm, Monday to Friday and costs $84/child per week or $72.50/child per week for afternoons only.

It’s CYF approved and WINZ subsidies may also be available for your family. Visit the WINZ website for more information.
