Learn to play, Play to learn



Both my 2 youngest have been through Korukidz, with my youngest leaving last week. 
I had no issues with his transition to school, as the ladies at Korukidz are absolutely brilliant and have prepared my son for the next level. 
My son can count to 20 and above and knows his alphabet, colours and even some Maori vocab all taught to him while he was at Korukidz. 
Mel, and the team are a lovely bunch of carers with big hearts and all the passion. 
I’ll definitely be pushing my mokos through Korukidz.

Kia Ora 

I am a proud working Mum of 3. My 2 youngest children attend Korukidz, my middle child who has just turned 5 will be leaving the nest to attend primary school. She has blossomed into a wonderful kid, she was once a child who found it hard to express or control her emotions and often her speech wasn’t the best. Under the guidance and loving environment that Mel and her team have provided she is a totally different kid. I cannot thank them enough. My baby Has another 2 years at Korukidz and I can only imagine how well and truly ready she will be when it’s her time to attend primary. 

Among other things, the van service is a blessing, Ian and the beautiful ladies are always so kind to my girls. Making it so much easier as a working mum to put the girls on the van and giving me that extra time I need to get ready for work. I cannot recommend enough how much Korukidz has changed mine and our girls lives, Mel and the team go above and beyond for the kids and their parents. Just knowing my girls are well looked after and that they are happy is all I could ask for. I’m so happy I went out of my comfort zone and made contact. Only one regret, that I didn’t do it sooner.

My names is Jade and just recently my family of 4 babies and I have had to say bye to our whānau down at KoruKidz because our baby is finally off to school.. My experience with the centre and its workers have always been pleasant and as a Mum i always trusted my children were not only safe but always learning whether it be making Jelly in the kitchen or out in the yard with the teachers the kids always had something new to tell me. One of my favourite things we took away from the centre and its many wonderful teachers was a love for reading and an excitement for learning..... over the years the kids have even built up an impressive collection of books because of the yearly books that santa brings :) 

If you are looking for a family friendly environment for your little one to learn in look no further than KoruKidz!

 Ngā mihi mai i ahau ko aku tāonga.  (well wishes from me and my precious gifts :) 

Both my kids have been here with korukidz for almost a year and enjoyed going every morning. Mel and the team are absolutely amazing and supportive. The drivers who transported my kids to and from the centre were lovely and patient. Every morning I sent my kids here I knew they were in safe hands. Highly recommended!!

I have personally found the level of care and attention given to my baby to be of the highest standard and this is shown in every aspect of the centre. It is designed to help learning and growing young minds, with a flow of indoor and outdoor actives and also the excellent staffing and fantastic management who all make you feel very welcome as soon as you step foot in the door. I would recommend this centre to anyone and everyone with an under 5. You cannot go wrong - from a pick up and drop off van all the while receiving the best care possible. 

Thank you Mel and her team for having Rayne.
