At EduKids Marshland we are focused on creating a safe and stimulating environment, where children can learn through a variety of experiences which support and extend their learning. We have close relationships with the local schools (Banks Ave, Shirley, Waitakiri, Marshland) in our area to support our children with their transition to school. Our quality childcare centre is situated close to the palms and the local library which we visit on Tuesdays during school terms for story time.
Our centre provides children with the opportunity to follow their own interests, be creative, imaginative and to have fun. Teachers follow children’s interest and provide experiences to extend their learning goals through intentional teaching. We also believe that children learn best through play and when they engage in experiences they are interested in. Our team at EduKids Marshland believe our role is to assist children to grow up as competent, confident learners.
We pride ourselves on the partnerships we form with our parents, whanau and the community. Our centre is always welcoming, friendly and inviting. We have an enthusiastic qualified team that go the extra mile to ensure that your child is settled and happy with a sense of belonging. We pride ourselves on our relationships with our children and families; this is seen through links between our centre and home.
We have three separate age appropriate rooms that support the different stages of children’s learning. We have a nurturing nursery which caters for children aged 3 months to 2 years with a baby space for our non-mobile children. Our preschool caters for children 2 years to 3 and a half years and our Prepschool for children 3 and a half to 5 years.
We encourage you to come down to our welcoming centre and meet our friendly team. We have an open door policy, no appointment necessary. Come in for a look and see how your child could benefit from coming to EduKids Marshland.
