We recognise the huge decision you are making in selecting an Early Learning Centre that works alongside you the most important job of all: Raising your child. Your most precious taonga (treasure) has a unique experience of this world and we believe passionately in developing life-long connections with Whanau so that your child is given every chance of being successful in life.

For the past 30 Years we have had many children and families with us and feel proud of the legacy created. We are a colourful community that embraces the uniqueness of each child and offer diverse opportunities and experiences that are aligned with passion and interest. At Beach Kids Early Learning Centres we are enablers of learning, nurturing appropriately, providing challenges in response to your child. Furthermore our learning environments encourage social and emotional growth as your child will develop a strong sense of self as they find their place in this community.  

We feel privileged that you are considering a Beach Kids Early Learning Centre to be with you in this journey with your child,

"Beach Kids has been part of our lives for nearly 30 years. We have seven children of our own and five grandchildren and we have adapted our family values to create a space that is warm, inviting and an extension of our whanau to the local community. We love each and every child that comes to us and feel privileged to be a part of their lives."
