Prior to starting at Kiwi Kids we ask that you visit the centre with your child, the relationship between you, your child and the Primary Caregiver will start to be established.

We encourage parents to stay with their child as they become familiar with the environment and the teachers. It is important for parents to demonstrate that they feel happy and comfortable with their environment.
