Welcome to
Minnows Kindergarten!

Minnows is a small, friendly, early childhood daycare centre, located in the heart of Omokoroa.  Designed to have a home-like feel inside and out, our centre adjoins a large paddock and is near Cooney Reserve offering ample space to run around and explore. Our qualified teachers provide a high standard of childcare and preschool education for 0-6 year olds, including a school readiness programme for the older children.  

We have competitive fees for children of all ages and offer at least 20 free ECE hours for those 3+ years.  Our centre is licensed for only 27 children and has excellent teacher to child ratios. We celebrate diversity and pride ourselves on being inclusive.  Our centre is open 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, offering flexible, affordable, quality care. Pop in to see us at 3 Margaret Drive, Omokoroa (near the Fresh Choice roundabout and Cooney Reserve) or call / email us to find out more.

We recently moved our son to Minnows Kindergarten and couldn’t be happier with our decision. Nirmala and her team go above an beyond every day.

Minnows Kindergarten is really a second home to me. As a mother, of course you wanted the best for your child which I found at Minnows. All the teachers/staff is giving their best effort to every child.

I witnessed in first-hand Minnows teaching team’s sincere warmth, caring and respect for children under its care and its endeavour to encourage and help children to grow as competent and confident learners with high positive self-esteem.

Every morning my son runs up to Nirmala and gives her the biggest hug.
Her staff are fantastic and it is a relaxed homely atmosphere.

If you are looking for a new childcare centre I highly recommend them! I have recently enrolled my preschooler there and he so much happier then at his previous centre.

Our Focus

Minnows aims to be consistently responsive and solicitous to child’s individual needs and requirements. We endeavour to demonstrate sincere warmth, caring and respect in order first to build a trust so that each child feels secure and then to encourage and provide scaffolding that enhance each child to grow as a competent and confident learner who develop a strong sense of self and in turn develop a  high positive self-esteem.

We acknowledge parents as being the first educators of their children and the importance of working together for a positive learning outcome for their children.
