Welcome to TopKids Inglewood. Our beautiful lockwood centre is located in the middle of Inglewood, allowing us to be actively involved in our community. We celebrate events such as Puanga, Aso Paepae, Chinese New Year within the centre as well as being involved in the events from the local community including the annual Inglewood Parade and Americana. We support the local schools, tamariki and whānau with transition to school visits and involvement in a networking group alongside local schools, to ensure the transition to school process is as smooth as possible.
Our centre has 2 rooms, the nursery which caters to the specific needs of infants and toddlers and the preschool which caters for young children, Within our centre, you will find:
- Engaged and supported tamariki
- A sense of belonging for individuals
- Play spaces which include a variety of textures, space and open ended resources
- Spacious indoor and outdoor environments
- Our philosophy in practice is based on the vitures of caring, enthusiasm, confidence, respect and honesty
- Nutritious and homely cooked meals
- Whānau aspirations for their tamariki being embedded within their learning
Each teacher takes pride in their role and are there to support and help children develop skills to become capable, confident, life long learners. This is achieved through open reciprocal relationships with whānau, promoting tuakana-teina between the tamariki, as well as strong relationships within the community. We are activly involved in the Inglewood Community of Learners. Learn more about this here.

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.
