TopKids Ngatai Road is a quality childcare centre in Otumoetai convenient to the Tauranga CBD. Children from suburbs including Otumoetai, Matua and Pillians Point attend our centre.

We have a spacious property with a beautifully designed building. Our large outdoor area features a magnificent cherry tree, which provides plenty of shade in the summer. At TopKids Ngatai, our teaching teams are committed to ensuring that your child grows and develops in an environment that is safe and nurturing.

We have two separate rooms, TopTots and TopKids.

Our TopTots Room welcomes children aged from 3 months to 2 ½ years old.  We follow care routines from home to make the transition to the centre environment a smooth process for both the child and parents. Our activities are broad and are based on children’s interests, developing needs and fun. We work closely with our TopKids room to provide a transition programme that meets the needs of all children.

Our TopKids room is for children aged from 2 years until they leave for school. We incorporate our Be School Ready principles into our everyday experiences with the goal of supporting children in a holistic way. We provide an environment that is respectful, supportive, educational and challenging.  Our children are encouraged to be leaders in their environment by supporting others with self-help skills, settling, relationships and education.

We understand the importance of healthy food for children. We have a wonderful cook on site who recognises the need for good nutrition and exercise to help your child’s progress.

kind words from our parents


Thank you so much for all the work and time all the staff are putting into our awesome boy. It truly means a lot to our whole family, especially my son. For him to have such a full, interesting, fun and caring time with you all at TopKids.


TopKids Ngatai Road has been part of our family for 6 years since our oldest was 1. We have our 2 boys there currently and they love it! The team constantly provide a nurturing and caring environment. As parents, seeing our children so happy, confident and comfortable when we leave is so reassuring.


It truly means so much to us as parents to be able to see what our son is doing at TopKids. I love seeing his eyes light up in the morning and the big smile he has on his face when he sees his teachers waiting for him. I’m such a proud and happy parent to see my son happy and comfortable at TopKids.


I have two children currently attending, my son is 4 and my daughter is just about to turn 1. My son has been enrolled since he was 10 months old and enjoys it so much he often asks if he can go on the weekend! My daughter settled in really easily when she started, mainly due to the great effort, friendliness and all round awesomeness of the staff. When exciting things happen, lots of photos are taken by the staff and posted on Storypark. This means so much to me and my Husband as work and other commitments mean we would otherwise miss out on seeing our children take part in these activities. You truly have a great team of people working at TopKids, Ngatai Road and I really appreciate the time and effort they put in and the love they give out to my children.


Visiting Otumoetai Pa Historic Reserve

Over the past couple of months the tamariki at TopKids Ngatai Rd have been learning about the history of the Otumoetai Pa which holds great significance and meaning to our local community. The children have been learning the names of the carvings that mar
