Kindy Cottage is a small early childhood centre that is purpose built for the care and education of children aged from 5 months to 5 years. Kindy Cottage Childcare is situated in Mairangi Bay on Auckland's North Shore in a quiet residential area next to a reserve. At our child day care we believe in providing an environment that is an extension of the children's homes where they can experience child-centered learning exciting educational opportunities and stimulating activities.

Our Approach

Kindy Cottage provides an environment where creative expression and self-help skills are developed in a child initiated environment supported by educators. We believe that young children learn naturally through play and from each other. Kindy Cottage encourages socialisation and formation of positive relationships between children, educators and parents. Our programme follows Te Whaariki the National Early Childhood Curriculum.
