WELCOME TO OUR KIDS EARLY LEARNING
WEST AUCKLAND BASED CHILDCARE

Our Kids Learning Centre was founded in 2008 by Anita Kumar, now expanded to three early childcare centres and known in the community for our commitment to quality Early Childhood Education and equal learning opportunities.

Our Kids combines intimate community relationships, New Zealand’s Te Whariki curriculum, the principles of Pikler and RIE philosophies, and children’s play urges to form a progressive solution to learning. This ensures that their experience at our early childhood centre is a positive and engaging one, from the first moment they step into our day care until they begin their transition to school.

A PLACE OF WONDER

Our Kids teachers strive to create an inclusive atmosphere by listening actively to each child and responding to their needs and interests. We believe that by observing and respecting your child’s desire to explore, we can forge authentic and trusting bonds together, creating an environment of mutual respect, and a “home away from home” that your child can feel safe at.

At Our Kids, we believe that forming strong relationships is key to boosting your child’s curiosity, wonder, and involvement, and go a long way in facilitating their learning experiences.

Introducing... Our Kids Glen Eden

We believe at Our Kids Early Learning Glen Eden what makes us unique is our mixed age and small family homely early childhood setting.

Our Kids Beazley, is hands down one of the best ECE centres in Auckland. The teachers, every single one of them have nothing but love and support to share. I love that they teach Kaitiakitanga, Manakitanga and Kotahitanga.

Our Kids are such an amazing center, wouldn’t send our boy anywhere else! The staff are fantastic- so positive and friendly. They truly care about the kids and their development, and take such great care of them all. They have become like family to us, and we love having them as part of our ‘village’ for our boy!

Our Kids Glen Eden has been such a positive and nurturing centre for our son. They have worked with us to create a consistent approach to learning and behaviour which has worked wonders.

I feel Cohen has benefited greatly from being in a mixed aged environment, interacting and making friends with children of all ages. As he has had the opportunity to interact with the babies and infants in the centre, he has learnt to be gentle and caring towards younger children.

We looked at quite a few daycares when the time came for me to go back to work. Nico was 2 years old and Kaino was 5 months old. None of the other daycares we looked quite felt right but when we arrived at ‘ Our Kids’ Nico took a glance inside and ran off to play straight away. After I had a talk to the staff that work there and asked all my questions that I wanted answered, Nico did not want to leave as he enjoyed it there so much! So really my little boy chose his daycare all by himself. The staff are all lovely and are fully trained in early childhood education. My boys love going to daycare and really look at it as their second home away from home. Nico is starting school in a few weeks now and is well prepared for it. I am so happy that we found ‘Our Kids’ and can only recommend them.

Our now 5 year old attended the Glendene centre and we loved it so much. Like a home away from home, even our older son who was already at school would love coming in for a chat with the teachers at pick up time. Our son transitioned to school so well and i believe a lot of that is due to the confidence he gained at such a wonderful centre. A big highlight for us was the mixed ages, our son attended from age 3-5 and he loved interacting with the babies. I'd have no hesitation at all to send a wee one there as its like dropping them off at an aunties house. All the staff genuinely care about each and every child and really make an effort to expand on their personal interests and create new learning opportunities through play. Such a wonderful centre with amazing teachers.

Where to even start ? I honestly don’t see my kids going anywhere else but here , the center along with staff and other parents have made the one year my kids have been here such a beautiful Journey , I have two boys attending and the amount of new things they both learn and bring home is just incredible , my eldest went from a shy kid who just sticks to himself to this confident, brave outgoing person that always wants to help and try new things, my eldest will be heading to primary next year and I am well over confident that the center have taught and given him the skills and attitude to advance his learning abilities. Thank you soo much to the team at Our Kids Early Learning Centre Glendene for your hard work and dedication towards what you do and have done to my boys (even though they can be a little gggrrr sometimes) lol much ofas from our little family to you guys 🙂

Teaching is responsive to individual children's needs and teachers make links to children's experiences outside of the centre. Teachers are increasing their knowledge of te ao Māori perspectives by participating in professional development. As a result, they are continuing to strengthen bicultural aspects of the curriculum.
