Dynamic Kids has been an important part of the local Onehunga community for more than ten years. They have joined the Our Kids Family in November 2020.

Our Kids provides a beautiful early learning childcare environment inspired by the Reggio Emilia & RIE approach to teaching and learning. This is a positive, affirming childcare learning space that enables children to freely explore and lead their own learning, supporting them to blossom intellectually, physically, socially, and artistically. Our environment is considered an important teacher and has been set to intentionally encourage curiosity, and discovery, extending children’s dispositional learning.

Our Kids childcare centre in Onehunga aims to set the stage and ignite that initial piece of wonder and creativity in children, positively influencing their entire lives. By attending Our Kids, located at 208A Church St Onehunga, we envision that each child will have set their foundation and move into Primary School with great momentum, confidence, creativity, and capacity.

We create a home away from home for children in our early childhood educational community. We do this by building open and positive relationships with whanau (families). Our goal is to encourage collaboration, encompassing the diversity of our community. These warm, trusting, and loving partnerships form the backbone for children’s learning to support each child’s sense of mana whenua (belonging).

We believe that the arts and strong connections with papatuanuku (nature) set the stage for learning. These ideals ignite that initial piece of wonder and creativity in a child that positively influences their entire lives. Peaceful music is purposefully incorporated into the learning environment to support atheistic and cognitive development. We use the 100 languages of children to reinforce their own perspectives of the world around them and their place in it.

We foster the well-being of children through good nutrition and active movement to fuel children’s busy bodies and growing minds. We recognise Maori as the first people of Aotearoa. Te Ao Maori is woven into our daily practice.

Rochelle Cole

Centre Manager, Our Kids Onehunga

Kia ora e te whānau,

My name is Rochelle Cole and I am the centre Manager over at Our Kids Early Learning Centre Onehunga.

I have a Bachelor of Education in Primary/Intermediate teaching and I have been working for Our Kids Early Learning since 2012 which has provided me with multiple opportunities for growth and development over this time.  My approach to teaching and learning as a whole is centred around ako/ recipricol learning, and whakamana/ empowered child led learning, with an emphasis on dispositions and attitudes towards lifelong learning.  We strive for our tamariki to experience a challenging and thoughtful environment that encourages respect for themselves, respect for others, while also fostering a deep and instrinsic connection with Te Taiao.

High quality education means ensuring a holistic and culturally inclusive response to teaching and learning where tamariki, kaiako, and whānau feel capable and valued to confidently express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings.  I embrace a shared leadership model, nurturing and building beautiful collaborative whanaungatanga between Kaiako, and whānau, where everyone feels connected through a strong,  authentic sense of belonging.

Divya Chand Over 2s Head Teacher at Our Kids Early Learning Centre Onehunga

Divya Chand


Kia Ora,

I am Divya and the 2IC of our kids Onehunga. I have been working under the Our kid’s umbrella since 2020 and it has by far been the most adventurous time in my career. I’ve had great opportunities for growth and continuous learning here, which I’m truly grateful for.

I’ve always been passionate about working with young children, which made me chase my passion for early childhood education. Choosing this career for myself has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in life.

My beliefs are that every child should be given every opportunity to grow into a happy, healthy, and confident individual. Children are confident, capable learners and I encourage children to take on challenges where they can further develop their interests and skills and make choices for themselves. I enjoy being a part of our tamariki’s little world and believe that there is a lot to learn from children itself. This is something I really love about this job. Working as a support worker previously, I have gained great knowledge and experience in working with children and adults with disabilities which has sparked a deep interest in me to care for children with diverse needs.

Building trustful and strong relationships with our kaiako, tamariki and whanau are highly valuable to me. Being a parent myself, I can put myself in other parents’ situations and understand them better, as well as be able to make a deeper connection with our tamariki. I look forward to building more meaningful relationships and working closely with the children, parents/whanau of Our Kids.
