Learn through Play

Our learning through play programme promotes social competencies, literacy and numeracy skills, together with positive attitudes and dispositions for learning. 

Through cooperative play and creative activities, children reach their social, emotional and physical milestones naturally and with ease.

Explore and play with us


Our daily programme is underpinned by Te Whāriki, the early childhood curriculum. Our child focussed programme provides rich, unhurried experiences to empower your child while they explore and learn.

Self-directed play and teacher led opportunities support children to develop their sense of self, while strengthening interpersonal skills, self-regulation and cognitive development. 

Nurture with Nature

Our expansive, outdoor-focused Early Learning Centre offers authentic, nature-rich experiences, specifically designed to encourage each child’s growth and development, holistically and at their own pace. 

Our outdoor education and garden-to-table programme engages the heart and mind of each child.

Develop a positive association with nutritious food


Country Kids places high value on nurturing, respecting and celebrating a child's unique qualities.

Each person brings with them their own sense of being, knowing and doing. 

We also uphold a commitment to biculturalism. Mātauranga Māori, tikanga values align with our philosophy and are woven into planning & learning experiences for tamariki. 

Reciprocal Partnerships

Our team take time to get to know and to develop partnerships with whānau and families.

We respect each families' values and aspirations.

Together, in collaboration with you, and with specialists in early education, our team co-construct authentic learning opportunities to extend, nurture and celebrate each child's developmental successes.

Form a partnership with us 


As the saying goes... it takes a village to raise a child. We connect with local schools and places of interest to promote quality learning opportunities and experiences to scaffold each child's understanding of the wider world in which they live. 

Our community celebrations support families to connect purposefully with one another.
