Community Kindy the Mount is a quality childcare centre situated in the heart of sunny Mount Maunganui. We offer both sessional and long day early childhood education for children 2-5 year of age.

You will find that the needs of your child are met by very experienced and passionate teachers. We are all committed to providing a fun, home away home atmosphere. We provide an educational environment that promotes bi-culturalism and respects all ethnic groups. We know the importance of giving children time, space and opportunities to take risks in their play.  This allows them to continually test the limits of their physical, intellectual and emotional development. Children can explore their environment through a balance of teacher directed and self- initiated discovery which focuses on the interests and development of the individual.

Our children are offered a Be School Ready initiative that prepares them with all the skills needed for the next stage of their learning journey. Children love learning, so we create environments where they can be immersed in learning and absorb an understanding of maths, language, writing, exploration, social skills and more. We consider it a privilege to have a role in the lives of the children entrusted to us.

We have a special relationship with the local schools which are Mount Maunganui Primary school, Omanu and Arataki and this provides a great basis for transition into school.

We provide creative dance, playball and weekly library trips as extra-curricular activities.

Come and visit us today and learn more about how we can help your child thrive.


kind words from our parents


Thank you so much for all you have done for Spence over the last 2½ years. We have loved seeing him thrive from a shy reserved little boy into a confident young man with a love of sports, construction and friends. We are so sad to say goodbye but wish everyone all the best!


Thank you for everything! Enrolling Shane with Mount Kindy was the best thing I could’ve done for both him and I. Not only have you all been so wonderfully supportive of me as a parent but you have helped shape my son into the confident, independent, happy little man that he is today. The difference in Shane’s learning abilities, vocabulary, experiences, stories and development is huge – and that’s thanks to you. You really are the perfect example of the perfect kindy and I am so grateful that we got to experience that. I wish we could take everyone and everything with us. Shane has formed such special friendships and I have too. We will both miss you all. We love you Mount Kindy!


Thank you so much for everything you have done for us all over this year. We feel very lucky that our children have had such an amazing time at Community Kindy Mount. They’ve felt loved, cared for and challenged to grow in all the things that they’ve done. The opportunities that you have offered them have helped shape them to who they are already. We know that their time with you has prepared them for school, given them independence and taught them how to work and be considerate of others. The memories we have are special.


You are all amazing teachers, we really appreciate how you have cared for our daughter, taken an interest in her life and interests and have fostered and brought out the best in her. She has loved kindy and we are sad to see her leave her little happy place with all her little friends.


Thank you all so much for all of the time, effort, care and energy you have put in over the years with Sam and Toby. Community Kindy Mount is an outstanding EC centre and we feel very fortunate to have been a part of the community. You have truly wonderful staff who are just amazing with the kids.


We think you are all amazing and our girls are just so happy with you and we are always amazed at the cool creations they end up bringing home. We rave about you guys to our friends and are just so thankful to have found such a great kindy.

PJ Day!

At Community The Mount we wondered what could beat a Pyjama day, popcorn and Peter Rabbit on a cold winters day? Nothing, so as the rain beat down outside we were warm and cozy indoors having a whole lot of PJ day fun!     T...
