About Us

The Kids’ Reserve community is open to all children and families. We are your local kindy in Thorndon. Our opening hours are 7.45am to 5.15pm, Monday to Friday. The centre is open throughout the year excluding statutory holidays, two teacher-only days per year, and for a two-week period over Christmas/New Year. Children attend a minimum of three full days per week.

Masayo, our Cook, provides nutritious food throughout the day for all children. See more on our healthy menu here. Kids’ Reserve has a Healthy Heart Award (HEHA). We understand how good nutrition and physical activity impact on children’s current health and development. At our centre we consistently provide healthy nutritional food as well and have implemented regular physical activities into the daily routine.

The centre employs trained and registered teachers, support staff, and a centre cook. We have a strong focus on quality in group care and our centre’s Child Protection Policy is updated yearly so that the community can feel our tamariki are our most important assets.

A Management Committee is elected each year at an Annual General Meeting and provides support and governance to the centre and its staff.
