About Us


Central Kids Early Education has been providing high quality, affordable early childhood education and care since 1951. We offer a child-led, learning through play philosophy that enables children to grow at their own pace, socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively (thinking creatively, problem solving, decision making).

“When children are free to play, they play naturally at the ever-advancing edges of their mental or physical abilities”. (Peter Gray Ph.D.)

Our philosophy is underpinned by our core values of;

Ko ngā tamariki te pūtake – children are central to all that we do

Mana ki te tangata – maintain the dignity and standing of others

Tiakina a Papatūānuku – protect and enhance the environment

Manaakitanga – gain mana through generosity and goodwill
