TopKids New Lynn
TopKids New Lynn is a purpose-built centre which is located on Great North Road between New Lynn (Lynn Mall) and Kelston Shopping Centre. We provide a safe, dynamic and enriching learning environment for our tamariki and are committed to providing educational experiences that reflect bi-cultural and multicultural practice. The environment in our centre is happy, positive, caring and educational, which supports children to thrive and grow to become confident, competent lifelong learners.
Our Philosophy - At TopKids New Lynn, children, educators and whanau are respected and acknowledged. We believe in the holistic development of our children, working in partnership with our families and communities to achieve the best learning outcomes for all our tamariki.
Teaching team - We have a diverse team of dedicated and experienced teachers offering quality education and care for our children. Our teachers are committed, hardworking, open to communication and provide a resourceful environment that is reflective of our early childhood curriculum.
Curriculum - Our programme is based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whariki, which provides the foundation for us to develop an engaging and stimulating learning environment. Teachers encourage children’s involvement in collaborative group investigations and planning is supported by thoughtful assessment and evaluation.
Environment - Our spacious and attractive environment enables children to explore and investigate. The teacher’s role is to respond to children’s play and skilfully integrate learning about literacy, numeracy and science.
Tui Room (3 months – 2 years) - In our infants and babies room we support interaction with peers and adults, celebrate milestones and introduce new ideas, cultures and experiences. There are many opportunities to learn, play and develop. Our sleep room is quiet and peaceful to encourage restful sleep so your child is ready and able to continue their exploration of the world.
Kakapo Room (2 – 3 years) - As a toddler, your child will experience many opportunities to tap into their curious and creative sides. It is our aim to provide a loving, caring, nurturing homelike environment that promotes each child’s learning and development, self-esteem and individuality, whilst having a fun day.
Kowhai and Pohutukawa Rooms (3 - 5-years) - In preschool children develop the skills and knowledge needed to become competent lifelong learners. The various curriculum areas are designed thoughtfully and allow children to have free movement, sensory experiences and develop social skills.

kind words from our parents
I enrolled my son in TopKids New Lynn when he was 7 months old. As a first parent, I was quite hesitant leaving my very young son with strangers but it took less than a week for him to adjust and I knew he was in very capable hands.
My child has enjoyed coming to the centre. Staff are very informative and are very approachable. Great centre and will happily recommend to anyone! Keep up the good work.
Perfection can’t be improved. Just keep it up.
