BestStart Maunu Village, formerly TopKids Maunu Village, is an early learning childcare centre, nestled next to beautiful bush in the heart of Maunu. It is a purpose built and well-resourced centre with a license for 85 children, providing quality care and education for children from 3 months to 5 years old. We are a family focussed centre and welcome whanau to be an active part of your child’s learning journey while here at BestStart Maunu Village.

Our centre is made up of four rooms, each room supporting the learning and development for children of different ages. We feel this allows us to provide a curriculum best suited to each child’s interests and stage of development.

Our qualified and skilled teachers are dedicated to providing a warm, friendly and fun centre for our children and their families, where children can learn and develop a love of learning. Our curriculum is child inspired and child focused, building on individual interests.

We believe that each child has the fundamental right to be part of inclusive environment, with the opportunity to be supported by a rich curriculum. Building social competence, emotional regulation and self-resilience are all paramount in growing confident, capable tamariki ready to take on the journey ahead of them.

To find out more please contact us or drop in to see us we would love to meet you and your child.

Parent Feedback:

“This is an absolutely fantastic centre. I have been to two other places and I am just blown away with how great Maunu TopKids have been. The staff especially are absolutely amazing and extremely helpful.”

“My child loves it there! and I feel great that he and I are so comfortable there. I cannot thank your team enough for how easy you have made the transition for me heading back to work – I couldn’t be happier! You are my first recommendation to anyone! And my Little man is looking forward to everyday he is with you guys!”

“My son is 3 years old and since he’s been old enough he’s been to three different daycares. Until sending him here, the other daycares never felt as welcoming as this one. I am so happy with the education my son receives!! I would highly recommend this day-care to all my friends and family!!”
