Private Hamilton Kindergarten for Children Aged 0 to 5 years

Our dedicated qualified early childhood teachers provide rich learning programmes with weekly themes guided by the children’s own interests.

Our teachers work with children individually, in small groups and all together to identify personal interests, strengths and the progress they’re each making. We monitor progress in development of their skills, independence and confidence. We always share this with parents who are encouraged to contribute to their child’s learning.

Our semi-structured programmes allow children the freedom to play and explore yet provide routines and structured teaching that ensures they’re always learning.  Each centre’s programme is built around the developmental age and the individual routines of the children (e.g. sleep times) and typically includes:

  • Group mat times
  • Planned and spontaneous activities
  • Whole group, small group and individual activities
  • Active and quiet activities
  • Inside, outside and meal times

Programmes in all our centres follow the New Zealand early childhood curriculum Te Whāriki with our own particular emphasis on literacy and numeracy, which prepares children for a smooth transition through each of our centres and onwards to school. 

All children have their own personal learning portfolios which are a physical record of their progress at Kindyz and a personal and lasting memento of all their fabulous work.

We have frequent visits from top quality educational, cultural and entertaining guests and we have regular excursions locally and to destinations of special interest. There’s always something fun and interesting happening at Kindyz of Queenwood!

What our parents have to say...

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 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!

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.
