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.
