Our Philosophy

Private Hamilton Kindergarten for Children Aged 0 to 5 years

We provide a semi-structured programme with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy in a safe, fun and nurturing learning environment.

Child Initiated and Teacher Led

In each of our age-specific centres we provide a balanced programme where all children can develop and learn at their own pace. Individually, in small groups and as part of the larger group, children are given opportunities to acquire new knowledge, abilities and skills through varied learning activities. Children are encouraged to explore, be creative with our many activities, have fun and try things for themselves so they can find their own special strengths and interests and develop confidence, independence, a sense of self-worth and responsibility for their own learning.

Strong Family Relationships​

We pride ourselves on building positive, responsive and reciprocal relationships with our children and their families which provides a welcoming environment where children can be confident and successful learners. We acknowledge and collaborate with parents on their aspirations for their children’s learning and development.  We value our place in our community acknowledging the unique place of Māori as tanata whenua and of the many other cultures, languages and identities we share.

Consistency, Continuity and Stability​

Children can progress through our centres from Kindy Bubz (0-2.5 years) to Kindy Totz (2.5-3.5 years) and finally to Kindy Tweenz and Kindy Kidz (3.5-5 years).  Children get a significant advantage by coming through each of our age-specific centres. They benefit from our shared educational philosophy, become familiar with our consistent routines and establish exceptional foundations for learning that help them as they transition onwards to school.

What our parents have to say...

My boy has been enjoyed the learning experience, much more than I imagined.
Both our boys have been at Kindyz since Kindybubz. They have learnt so much, experienced so many cool things and had so much fun. The staff are fantastic and really care about our boys. Our eldest son just started school and was completely ready and excited due to the literacy and numeracy and life skills learnt at Kindykidz and Kindytweenz. I can't recommend Kindyz of Queenwood highly enough!
This is one of the most incredible kindy facilities I have ever been to. Both of our kids attended from 6 months old and when it came time to go to school they had all of the tools to start them off in the right direction. They could write, read and were aware of how the school day ran. Heather and her team are very nurturing, funny and always give the kids the tools, time and love that they need to develop in to great young kids. I honestly believe that they have helped shape our kids in to the cool little individuals they are today. You know they must be doing something right when even your 8 yr old who hasn't been there for ages keeps asking to go back and visit!
This kindy is seriously amazing the love and care these teachers have for the kids is the best you could ask for ! awesome structure and learning ! Setting them up for life !! 😀
kindyz are the best so supportive and my kiddies just love it.
Absolutely outstanding!! So comfortable dropping our son off and his development is a compliment to the fantastic staff!!!
Kindyz have been fantatsic for our son
Driving home today my daughter was looking at a new plastic drink bottle that I had been given. She looked at the bottom of it and exclaimed "Mum this is ok! It's number 5 so we can recycle it when it breaks!" I really appreciate all that Kindyz of Queenwood have done for us over the years! We can confidantley send our daughter to School in the new year knowing that she is well and truly ready, not only with her literacy and numeracy skills but also her social skills and sense of repsonsibilty. Thank you Kindyz of Queenwood!

THANK YOU KINDYZ A+++++++ from me!!!!!

Awesome Kindy, great people and smart kids.
I started all 3 of my kids at Kindy Bubz and they've moved through the houses as they've gotten older. I love that concept, the kids stay with their peer groups and have teachers who specialise in their age group. The teachers are lovely and approachable and they've done a wonderful job of looking after my kids. Once they've graduated from kindy and are off to school they are well prepared. Well done Heather and Gareth.
