ERO has rated Community Kindy Heuheu Street in the top 7% of NZ childcare centres providing positive learning outcomes for children

BestStart Heuheu Street Kindy (formally Community Kindy Heuheu Street) is a purpose-built kindy that caters for children from 2-5 years, situated in the local Taupo CBD between the Spoon & Paddle Café and Jetts Gym.

Choosing our Community Kindy will mean your child will be in a safe, caring environment with teachers who are employed for their knowledge, commitment and love of children. Your child will enjoy an environment where they develop meaningful relationships with others and the confidence to achieve their own goals.

We identify children’s individual interests and plan our programme according to these interests. Our programme planning is always alive throughout Community Kindy life as we foster children to thrive through their interests.

We also ensure that we make links to how we are going to support and foster literacy and numeracy development as part of our Be School Ready initiative.

Our commitment to parents/whanau is that every child in our centre will get the care, encouragement and attention to prepare them for a happy, well-balanced and positive future. We provide healthy, well- balanced morning and afternoon tea.

Come visit our wonderful centre or give us a call now to find out more about enrolling your child at Community Kindy Heuheu Street. We look forward to working in partnership with you, your child and your family/whanau to Community Kindy Heuheu Street.



We have a Healthy Heart Award!

Parent Feedback:
“We left for a bit due to moving out of town the best thing was moving back my son missed Heuheu Kindy so much.”

“I love Heuheu Street! Amazing parent/teacher/student relationships. Can’t fault them.”

“I’m really happy my child attends this Kindy he really enjoys coming here and playing with the other children. He adapted really fast to his new Kindy, staff and other children.”

“Community Kindy Heuheu Street is absolutely AMAZING. My child, who arrived very shy and quiet, has blossomed into this happy and outgoing wee girl since attending this Centre. I cannot stress how much effort the teachers put in to the child day in and day out, they always greet you with a smile and give you daily updates as to how your child has been. I am incredibly stoked with the progress my daughter is making since she started Kindy and how much she has learnt in the last few months. The teachers are always accommodating to your needs and have an endless amount of patience. The facilities are great and there is always so much for the kids to do”
