At Kidz@Wintec, we believe children learn and develop best when their individual needs are met while having fun in a positive, nurturing environment.

We offer a high quality, stimulating environment which is open and caring for children, their families and whānau. We see children as capable, competent learners, and Te Whāriki is the curriculum used to guide our practice through a play-based approach. Come and visit us to see for yourself!


Kidz@Wintec employs staff with a range of qualifications and skills. A number of our staff are certified teachers and all staff hold current first aid certificates. We support staff in training to become early childhood education teachers.

We have one staff member for every four children under two and one staff member for eight children aged over two.

We can take up to 20 infants and toddlers under two and up to 39 children aged over two.

We are licensed and chartered by the Ministry of Education.


  • Two separate areas: one for infants and toddlers and one for young children
  • Inside and outside play areas are available for most of the day
  • We have five-minute parking by the entrance for arrivals and departures to and from the centre


The centre does have a waiting list for places. You should contact us early and fill out a waiting list form so that you are on the list for when a place becomes available.

If we have a place available, you must complete an enrolment form. Please allow half an hour to do this.
