Nursery - 3 months to 2 year olds

Kiwi Kids Nursery offers a peaceful and respectful philosophy to teaching and learning with primary caregiving.

Through primary caregiving we are able to build strong, responsive relationships with children and their whanau. Each child has a caregiver that is responsible for meeting their care routines and building a strong partnership with families. These relationships ensure a sense of familiarity and wellbeing for each child.

We follow each child's own routine, meeting their care needs as they would experience at home.


Children are encouraged to develop at their own pace with freedom of movement, uninterrupted play and the ability to explore the classroom and outdoor area within a safe and secure environment.

Our programme allows for children to learn while having fun! The programme is based on the emerging interests and developmental stages of the children, allowing for spontaneous experiences as well as planned. Kiwi Kids allows for children to be children and to have fun alongside their peers and teachers.


Each day is a Kiwi Kids Preschool Adventure.


We are conveniently located in Hillmorton, Christchurch our nearby suburbs are - Halswell, Hoon Hay, Cashmere, Spreydon, Addington, Middleton, Wigram.
