Organic Kids

The quality of childcare has a direct impact on a child’s ability to learn, to build healthy relationships, and to become the best they can be. In-home childcare allows children the ability to experience a warm nurturing home environment with one special person. This warm, sensitive and responsive relationship, not only gives children a sense of security but also stimulates brain development and leads to better cognitive, behavioural and social skills. It really is the next best thing to your children being at home with you.

You’ll find our kindergarten on Northcote Road beside the beautiful Craighead Reserve. We have ample parking at both entrances - on Northcote Road and at the end of La Perouse Place.  We're proud to provide a programme for children aged 2 – 5 years where we foster a strong sense of belonging by encouraging children to show Manaakitanga - caring for each other, and Kaitiakitanga -  by caring for our environment. We encourage our tamariki to be self-directing, creating their own challenges and being supported to achieve their goals.
