Kia ora and welcome to KiNZ Sandringham

KiNZ Sandringham provides beautiful learning spaces that invite children to extend and develop their skills and knowledge.  Children are empowered to imagine and construct their reality through play – providing a feeling of competence and control, and building self-esteem.

Care and respect are core values at our child care centre, and our responsive teachers strive to extend children’s interests, learning and development.

At KiNZ Sandringham, we focus on providing a rich multicultural environment that respects and encourages the cultural backgrounds of our families and whānau.

Children can use information technologies to enhance learning opportunities, and we are privileged to use the Edendale Primary School playground, especially during holidays.

Sangita, Rose, Anna, Charity, and Ling welcome you to KiNZ Sandringham!

What parents are saying…

  • Our children gained incredible confidence on joining KiNZ. They learned how to build relationships and respect their friends and teachers. The children were regularly given age appropriate responsibilities, and they absolutely loved to shine in these roles. On those odd days where a child was needing extra reassurance and support, I observed the teachers were always there for them, calmly reassuring the child and assisting the child to negotiate their feelings. Food was nutritious, tasty and healthy. The menu was thoughtfully put together and the kitchen immaculate. One of my children had special dietary requirements and this was catered to with ease.

From the ERO Reports…

  • Positive, respectful relationships promote a nurturing, environment that supports children’s wellbeing and their sense of belonging in the centre.

  • The flexibility of learning programmes enables children to play and develop at their own pace and to initiate their own learning. Children engage in sustained collaborative play and show respect for one another while working in small groups.
