TopKids Pukuatua is a purpose built childcare centre for children from 3 months to 5 years. We are close to several primary schools in the area, and work with them to ease children’s transition to school

At TopKids Pukuatua, we acknowledge and support children’s individual learning, and recognise the importance of cultural values, language and customs. We encourage and foster the development of partnerships with parents and appreciate that they are a vital part of the learning process.

We have three separate rooms – 3 months to 18 months (Whare Kakano) Babies, 18 months to 3.5 Years (Te Tipu) Toddlers, and 3.5 to 6 in the Preschool Room (Totara).

We aim to provide an environment where children can experience every opportunity to enhance their learning and development through encouraging and questioning, scaffolding and extending, fostering of Tuakana/Teina (older/younger) relationships and positive guidance.

We also believe that children learn best through play and when they engage in experiences they are interested in. We value the importance of discovery, creativity and exploration. Our programme not only supports your child in their learning but extends their interests based on Te Whariki, our early childhood curriculum.
