Our Kids Early Learning Centres in Glendene and Glen Eden were established in 2008 and 2012 by Anita Kumar to offer quality preschool childcare and education for children from 6 months to 5 years old. We provide safe, secure, and dynamic learning environments where foundations are laid for a lifelong love for learning. Our Philosophy focuses closely on: inclusive atmosphere, active listening, environment and relationships.

Our early childhood centres are special places where curiosity, wonder, discovery and spontaneous imagination facilitate children’s learning. We believe that strong relationships and involvement from children, families/whānau, and the Our Kids teaching team, are the building blocks that help create a warm, rich, and diverse learning environment for our communities’ children.

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. This was evident to us when his baby sister arrived recently and he was so loving towards her and knew what appropriate behaviour was around her. Cohen loves to play in the beautiful outdoor area which has many different areas to explore, and activities to challenge him and burn off some of his energy!
