Auckland Kindergarten Association
Are you looking for quality early childhood education for your child?
Established in 1908, the Auckland Kindergarten Association (AKA) is a charitable trust made up of over 100 kindergartens and early learning centres across the greater Auckland area which offer both sessional and kindergarten day model services.
Our kindergartens provide a safe, nurturing and enriching learning environment where young children develop as confident and competent learners. We provide large, natural outdoor areas for your children to explore. All teaching staff are qualified in early childhood education, hold current teacher registration and first aid certificates. We also have ECE fee subsidy options available at all kindergartens.
We believe that children’s play is essential to meaningful learning experiences, and our staff work alongside the children to enhance the value of this learning. To scaffold concepts and techniques, and introduce new ideas, our teachers explore language, mathematics, science, literacy, technology and sustainability alongside the children. We also believe a partnership between children, teachers, family/whanau and the community is fundamental to a positive quality learning environment.
Unlike schools our kindergartens are not zoned and therefore, you can enrol your child at the kindergarten of your choice. There are 107 kindergarten's Auckland wide, so there is one in your local community. It is a good idea to visit several of our kindergartens, talk with the teaching team and experience the centre in action before you decide which best suits your child and family needs. Additionally, you may like to read the Education Review Office’s report on the kindergarten which is available at the kindergarten or online at www.ero.govt.nz.
So pop in to one of your local kindergartens today to see the wonderful opportunities on offer.
For more information visit our website or give us a call to find out more. Or alternatively, visits are welcome so feel free to drop in to a kindergarten of your choice. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
The Auckland Kindergarten Association subsidiary company KiNZ has four early learning centres. Please refer to their listing for further information, visit our www.kinz.org.nz or phone 300 1818.Visit Website

Loving Laingholm KindergartenBy Tracey Ashton on 25/07/2013 12:06:38 PM
Our little boy has been at Laingholm Kindy since back end of last year and he loves it. He has grown in so many ways since being there. The teachers are all amazing and the location is out of this world ... my friends back in the UK saw some photos and were blown away ... surrounded by horse paddocks and a view of the Manakau Harbour in the distance. We also love that its (...) Read more
