Redwood Kids

At Redwood Kids, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.

With a safe and nurturing environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.

Our centre caters for tamariki aged 0-6yrs and we are open 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday. Located in the rural Havelock North, we provide a beautiful, natural and spacious environment with amazing experiences for the children, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

Your child will love the well laid out learning corners at our centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.  There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.

Our teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.

Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development.  All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.  This special environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.

"Sending my daughter to Redwood Kids was the best decision I ever made. I have noticed how much her confidence and social skills have blossomed. The staff are brilliant at nurturing and supporting developmental growth. They are so caring and understanding that I have complete peace of mind dropping her off each day. My daughter gets so excited when we drive in and just can’t wait to go each day."

“Overall great centre, great staff. I can't express how nice it is to have a child who is excited at drop off, genuinely enjoys daycare, feels secure & sleeps well each day. This is 100% because of the caring staff in the Nursery who have embraced his personal routine & understand his needs.”

“It's the extras that make parents want to enrol their children at a particular centre. There are so many centres that provide childcare so it's the ones that provide more than just childcare that flourish. Cooking in the kitchen, cultural days, excursions, community events like Daffodil Day in the village etc. are examples of some of the things Redwood Kids do."
