Kindy Totz private Kindy and Childcare for children aged 2.5 to 3.5 years

Kindy Totz specialises in quality educational daycare for children aged from 2.5 to 3.5 years. We offer flexible full day, morning or afternoon sessions. This helps us be Hamilton’s best age specific kindy for learning. But above all we’re always nurturing and fun.

Personalised Learning

A semi-structured educational programme in a safe, fun and nurturing learning environment.

All children at Kindy Totz have a personal learning plan combining care and early childhood education. This means we encourage every child to find their own strengths and discover areas of interest. As a result your child will become confident in their own learning. 

100% Qualified Teachers

We're licensed by the Ministry of Education for 30 children per session. All our teachers are fully qualified. We also have extra which means our adult-to-child ratios are exceptional.

Developmentally Appropriate Kindy Programmes

Children enjoy a variety of stimulating activities and resources. They are taught skills and concepts that enhance their learning.
Semi-structured sessions are built around children’s routines (e.g. sleeping). These include a weekly theme of interest to the children. In addition appropriate activities, toys and resources are provided for the children to explore and experiment. Of course every child develops at their own pace. Because of this our teachers carefully plan activities to incorporate all the different levels and abilities. Importantly, social skills are developed through small and large group activities. We also help with other challenges of this age group such as toilet training. Above all we’re always caring and nurturing.

Literacy and Numeracy

We focus on early concepts of literacy and numeracy. Importantly this provides a solid foundation for children’s progression to more formal reading, writing and maths. Our fun activities include:

  • Listening to and enjoying stories
  • Learning number songs and finger rhymes
  • Identifying their name and photos of themselves
  • Learning letters and writing their name
  • Puzzles and problem solving
  • Recognising numbers
  • Matching objects, colours, numbers
  • Counting objects
  • Developing their fine motor skills by cutting, painting and drawing

Semi-structured Sessions

Our semi-structured programme incorporates all of these routines into each session:
  • Group mat times, encouraging confidence to join in, listen and show respect for others
  • Theme activities, which are topical and often initiated by the children ensuring greater interest
  • Large and small group activities
  • Active and quiet activities
  • Creative activities such as painting, collage, printing, baking, music etc.
  • Collaborative activities such as construction blocks, Lego
  • Free play with our extensive range of toys, games and equipment
  • Structured inside, outside and meal times

Purpose Designed Premises​

Warm and inviting, our small centre is purpose designed for this age group. For instance this includes separate climate control, sleep room, change facilities and bathroom facilities. Furthermore our outside area is well-shaded with age-appropriate playgrounds and real grass.

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!

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.
