Kimberley Childcare Te Atatu received a positive review from the Education Review Office in 2019. This means that whether you are looking for quality care for your under twos or excellent school preparation for your preschoolers, you can be rest assured that we have you and your child's best interests at heart.
We are a diverse centre with good ratios, high qualification rates, and great opening hours (7 am - 6 pm weekdays). Our teachers really enjoy helping under fives grow up into their best selves.
Come and see our centre, situated in a very handy location on the corner of Flanshaw and Te Atatu roads. We'd love to show you around!
You can do it!
Recommended by the Ministry of Education, this programme promotes the development of a child’s social and emotional capabilities, including the five foundations: confidence (academic, social), persistence, organisation, getting along, and emotional resilience.
In preparation for school, we use Jolly phonics and Reading eggs to help children with learning the sounds of the letters as well as how to form the alphabets correctly.
We also teach Sport, Mathematics, Writing, Science, Health/Wellbeing and Baking.
"It has been my pleasure now to visit Kimberley Childcare several times in my role as Assistant Principal and a NE and Y1 teacher. I have been very impressed each time I have visited... We have had the pleasure of several children starting at Edmonton from Kimberley and they have all been delightful additions to the school community, they come with a good grounding in the basic building blocks from which to have a successful start to school."
- Esther, Local teacher
