Why Choose Coast Kindy
What makes us unique?
Check out our extensive outdoor space which has multiple play areas including a sand and water area and climbing spaces which provide physical challenges. We have a large space for bikes, scooters, waterplay, ball play and tennis which promote gross-motor skills, eye-hand coordination, fun and challenges.
Our curriculum encompasses all aspects of your child’s day and includes active play, carpentry, bikes, well resourced art and craft opportunities, gardening, imaginative play, beach walks, library visits, music and movement etc. We intentionally follow the children’s interests and provide space for them to be creative and expressive, secure in their sense of belonging, growing up as competent and confident learners.
We are more than just an Early Learning Centre.
We are a place where children and families can belong, find support and journey together.
Ti tiriti o Waitangi is recognised as the founding document for NZ and we seek to grow in our knowledge and experience of te reo and tikanga Maori in our Kindy day.
We have a long history of achieving the Healthy Heart Gold Award and promote healthy food and being active in our centre.
Sustainability is another key aspect with reusing, recycling and our worm farm supporting this focus.
The teachers are so gentle and kind
“Coast Kindy is a wonderful kindy. I have two children who both started there when they turned two, and they both adore it. The teachers are so gentle and kind, and we love that they use play-based learning. We recommend Coast Kindy to everyone we know. Thank you to the teachers for being such an important part of my kids lives, they love you!”
A hidden treasure
“A nourishing, nurturing gem, a hidden treasure on the Coast”
A safe and happy place

the Sclanders family

the Michaels family
Such a great place
“Oh my… kindy has been such a great place for [our son] where he has truly grown and gained confidence under the amazing kindy teachers that have empowered him. He explores and learns so much and surprises us at home with amazing amounts of knowledge. While I’m sad this time is ending in the kindy phase as he goes to school, I know he has skills from the dedicated Coast Kindy team that will help him succeed.”
A caring and creative space
“We highly recommend Coast Kindy. Both our grandchildren were part of the Coast family. This has always been a place of peace in the rush of our worlds. The facilities are 'old school' amazing and not clinical like some kindys. The teachers are so loving, nurturing, accommodating, kind, and patient. I really miss their welcoming smiles. If you're looking for a caring and creative space for your little one look no further.”
So experienced and caring
“Absolutely the best center with the best teachers who are so experienced and caring. You leave every day knowing your child will be loved and exposed to such lovely values in all they do and everyone they encounter.”
A beautiful, safe haven
