Welcome to Beachlands Centre
Just Kidz Beachlands is a beautiful, purpose-built centre, well located on Bell Road and conveniently across the road from Beachlands School. It is licensed for 86 children and caters for the educational and childcare needs of children from birth to 6 years of age. There are 4 very spacious learning spaces filled with exceptional learning and play resources. We have dedicated rooms for infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers with amazing large nature inspired playgrounds to the side and the rear of the building.
We are open from 7am – 6pm, Monday to Friday and offer half day sessions, ‘school’ days or full days on either a full-time or part time attendance. Our great location means families and whanau can enjoy the convenience of dropping older siblings off to school saving them valuable travel time.
Just Kidz Beachlands, is proud of the experienced and passionate staff who provide ‘a fun place to learn’, whilst ensuring each and every learner feels safe, welcomed, recognised and supported in their development and care. The staff are nurturing and value each child, encouraging their potential and inspiring curiosity and exploration, leading to a life of learning and social competence. In this, children learn with and alongside each other, communicating and sharing, whilst developing confidence in leading their learning, inspired by Reggio Emilia philosophy and Te Whāriki, the NZ ECE curriculum.
At Just Kidz Beachlands, we value, respect and recognise each child’s culture and identity. We want our children and families to hold a true sense of belonging within our centre and to feel that we are an extension of their home and community. Children and whanau will feel warm and welcomed, supported, heard and acknowledged.
We provide information about children’s ongoing development and learning through online portfolios, to enable sharing with family easily, as well as providing a portfolio book that each child can keep and revisit. These resources, beautifully capture the magic of learning and experience that each child embraces. In this, we work in partnership with parents and whanau in building on each child’s learning journey and recognise parents as first teachers.
Please, get in touch with us today or call in for a visit to see for yourself the fabulous and inspiring centre we have created and meet our fabulous team. We look forward to getting to know each new family and providing you with a wealth of support and positive early childhood experiences.
