About Us

Kiwi Kids Preschool is an established Early Learning Centre providing quality childcare for families. Kiwi Kids is conveniently located in the Linden Grove Estate, Hillmorton and is under the private ownership of Lilly Li and Lina Jin.

Kiwi Kids is a centre like no other, that provides a natural wonderland for children to play, have fun and learn with large open grassed areas, mature trees to climb, a bike track to race around and includes large inviting indoor environments.

Your child will be cared for by valuable early childhood teachers through primary care giving and key carers. It is with these teachers that your family develops a trusting relationship and you are encouraged to be part of your child’s learning experience.  We provide an environment that is positive and encourages children to work alongside each other as we guide and support them. Children have the freedom to make their own choices and to actively explore their environment. Children are encouraged to develop at their own pace with uninterrupted play, spontaneous and planned activities and freedom to explore the classrooms and outdoor areas in a safe and secure environment. Kiwi Kids allows for children to have fun with and alongside their peers and teachers.

Kiwi Kids provides nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day, which are prepared here at the centre. The children in our preschool and nursery experience the enjoyment of picking vegetables in the centre’s own gardens.

Kiwi Kids must be seen to be believed, so please come and see how your children can experience their own Kiwi Kids adventure today.
