Harbourside Kids Childcare Centre opened in 2010. We are a purposely built childcare centre with two separate childcare centres; the Under 2’s and the Over 2’s. These are separate facilities conveniently situated in the same location. This means we can provide childcare from 0 - 5 years. We are continually updating our facilities to ensure that they stay innovative, child-friendly and exciting for all to enjoy. Parents also feel safe dropping their children off at Harbourside Kids as our entrance is in a safe and quiet car park, well away from any busy roads.
The Under 2’s Centre
Our Under 2’s Centre is filled with modern teaching aids and nursery equipment. We provide a calm environment that our young children feel relaxed in, making the transition from home to centre easier. Our sleep room is well ventilated and children are provided with medically designed mattresses to ensure sleeping safety.
Indoors we have a variety of resources at children’s height so that they can access a range of stimulating toys. Outside children enjoy learning all about their physical body on our specially designed play ground and our safety matting ensures that children are safe to crawl, walk, run, and even climb – with the space to do it all at their own pace.
The Over 2’s Centre
Our children experience an environment designed just for them and their needs! Age – specific activities are inspiring and challenging for children aged 2-5 years. We make sure they stay safe and secure as they test their developing bodies on our playground and outdoor facilities.
Inside we have a range of activities for children to choose from. We aim to introduce children to different activities and support them as they develop interests and skills as they learn through play. Our large indoor and outdoor environments give children the space to learn alongside others and independently.
There is a great development in children aged 2-5 so we cater to this by providing a sleep area for those who need it. During this time we enjoy giving the older children a challenge and preparing them for school through exciting literacy and numeracy focused games and activities.
We make the most of our convenient location by taking children on excursions in our local community. This includes bush walks, the Takapuna library, The Bruce Mason Theatre, and many more exciting locations.
