EduKids Elles Road’s Beautiful Babies
Our Nursery children at EduKids Elles Road thought they would take a walk in our shoes, just like the BestStart management initiative. They walked exceptionally well in our shoes, and even took on some of our rolls such as helping to check on the sleepers and comforting their friends that were upset.
Spring Time Garden
This is a spring veggie & sunflower growing project we just started in September at Edukids Elles Road, our young gardeners show their interest in sowing tiny seeds, watering them daily, observing what plants need to survive and grow while learning the concept of sustainability, the sense of whanaungatanga and kaitiakitanga with peers.

Get Behind the Tour of Southland

The Tamariki waved excitedly as the support vehicles drove past, then waved their flags and yelled their encouragement as the bikes flew […]
Nursery Head to the Park
Today it was such a nice day so the Nursery room at EduKids Elles Road decided to go to the park. The children loved exploring the playground and eating their kai in the shade of a big tree. Some children were even brave enough to go on the big slide.
At EduKids Elles Road, we had our very own book day! The staff and children dressed up as their favourite book character. We had a shared kai and invited our whanau along. After kai we had a parade around the playground to show off our fun costumes!
