Community Kindy Powells Road is a purpose built centre located in Fairview Downs, Hamilton.

We are proud of our homely learning space which encompasses children’s natural curiosity to explore and learn. We have a fantastic team of qualified, caring teachers that promote and value the concept of the tuakana-teina approach.

Our open plan room caters for children aged 2-5 years. We recognise the value of children’s play as meaningful learning and we understand that children learn through their genuine interest. Teachers actively promote and role-model the skills required for building and maintaining positive relationships. We encourage children to develop self-help skills and to ultimately achieve independence.

We promote a culturally inclusive environment with inviting spaces for children to freely explore. The spaces are inspired by the children and strongly reflect the New Zealand Bi-Cultural Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whāriki. We are a bright and bubbly centre who welcomes and values participation from family/whānau, children, teachers and the wider community.

Our Visit To Butterfly Creek

kind words from our parents


The van service is awesome and I am grateful for this service, as in the past I found it hard with transport getting him there and picking him up. The van drivers are great, always pleasant and Tiare is very comfortable going to them. The resources given to Tiare at the kindy are awesome. The changes I have seen in him since being at Community Kindy Powells Road have lifted not only my spirits but also Tiare’s spirits, to where I finally believe that my baby is able to get all his needs met in life with good people working alongside him with his education, also his wellbeing. I am very grateful to the centre.
