EduKids East Tamaki is a brand new education and childcare centre in Papatoetoe.  Situated opposite KFC and next to Tarnica Cars, we are conveniently located, easily accessible and have plenty of parking.   We cater for children from 3 months to 5 years old and have a team of friendly, experienced and qualified teachers to nurture and inspire every child.  We have a warm, clean and nurturing environment, where all children are respected and encouraged to guide their own learning and development.

We have special Stay and Play sessions every Wednesday from 10-11am. We welcome all families from the community to come along and enjoy our wonderful centre with your child. Contact us for more information or simply turn up!

Our Nursery is situated on level 1 of the building where we have age appropriate toys and equipment to engage and extend children’s learning and development.  We also have an open plan area where our babies can explore freely.  Under 2’s have their own outside playground upstairs.

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 to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities. Click here for more information about this fantastic resource.
