Community Kindy Parton Road
Now taking enrolments for infants and toddlers in Papamoa!
Community Kindy Parton Road, is a quality childcare centre located in sunny Papamoa. You will find very experienced and passionate teachers who provide high quality education and care to our young children.
Our open plan room caters for children aged 2-5 years. We recognise the value of children’s play as meaningful learning. We understand that children learn through their genuine interests. Teachers actively promote the skills required for building and maintaining positive relationships. Children are encouraged to develop self-help skills and to ultimately achieve independence.
Our culturally inclusive environment has inviting spaces for children to freely explore. Spaces are inspired by the children and strongly reflect the New Zealand Bi-Cultural Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whāriki. We are a bright and bubbly centre who welcomes and values participation from family/whānau, children, teachers and the wider community.
At Community Kindy Parton Road we are proud of our homely learning space. This encompasses children’s natural curiosity to explore and learn. Our fantastic team of qualified, caring teachers that promote and value the concept of the tuakana-teina approach. We have a beautiful space for ten under two year old’s, which allows children to nurture and grow alongside older children while still having their own special space.
We provide Gyminis, Rugby and Dancing as an extra-curricular activity for your children and regular planned excursions. Regular Mobile library visits are also a highlight for all our children.
What makes us special?:
- Strong community partnership
- Spacious centre with lots of areas of play
- A natural environment with lots of animals for the children to care for
- A teaching team who are open, friendly and welcoming
- An environment that fosters and encourages parent/whanau involvement
- A centre that believes in building self-esteem, social skills and self help skills that encourage a love of learning
- Unique Be School Ready initiative
We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

“The teachers are amazing. Our daughter loves the teachers, and I think that their guidance influences the children – so the children are also lovely. We are very happy with the centre. Great team, creative efforts to promote children’s learning and development, keep up the good work!”
“Haylee and the team at Community Kndy Parton Rd are absolutely fabulous. They have always been accommodating of our needs, and have made our kids feel welcome at the Kindy. All of the teachers are approachable, and interested in learning about our two kids – asking how their weekend was, what they like to do today at Kindy, who their family members are. The outdoor environment is great for the kids. Its lovely heaving real grass (rather than astroturf) for them to run around on. Having a bike track, a garden, a stage area, a huge sandpit, carpentry area, and climbing apparatus are all reasons that contribute to us loving Parton Rd. We are very disappointed to be moving out of the area in the New Year, as we would have loved to have all three of our kids attend until they started school. I’m only hoping that our new facility will be as awesome as this one. I never have any reservations in recommending my friends to take their children here.”
“I love our centre!! They’re awesome and our children love them too. Thank you Community Kindy Papamoa Parton Road!!”
