Two specialised areas

We're a community-based, not-for-profit early childhood centre.

Set on the grounds of Te Aratai College on Aldwins Road, Kimihia Early Learning is safe, child focused, friendly and fun.

We prioritise high-quality care and fun learning. We partner with families and strive to support your whānau’s wellbeing.

Kimihia Early Learning Centre fosters an active whānau focus, supporting our community to succeed and thrive. We understand that children do well when their whānau have a sense of well-being and pressures are eased.

To do this, Kimihia Early Learning Centre provides healthy meals (morning & afternoon teas & lunches everyday)

Kimihia Early Learning Centre can also access:

  • Whānau food support where needed
  • Fee sponsorship and hardship support

We also promote a range of financial pathways to reduce the cost of our care services.
