Freedom to grow

At Kid Country Kumeu, we believe in giving your child the very best start, for a brighter future. Science shows
that 90% of the brain's development happens in these first five years, so the experiences and interactions your little one has during this time are incredibly important, as they form the foundation for future health, happiness, growth, development and learning success in school.

Child Reading in the Grass

Our philosophy

The Kid Country approach is a proven and personalised one, where collaboration with family and whanau is key. We work closely with you to determine the needs and aspirations you have for your child. Then we follow through with a safe, stimulating and joyful environment that gives them the freedom to grow at their own pace >> learning through exploration and play >> allowing them to develop their social, emotional, intellectual and physical skills >> alongside their peers and kaiako >> with an active, hands-on involvement in the local community. 

Happy, healthy development comes naturally, though our professionally designed, play-based educational programmes >> grounded within New Zealand (Te Whariki) and international curriculums >> tailored to each of the age-groups and the individual child >> delivered by an exceptional team of teachers >> and working to enhance the five key focus areas, below.
