Who We Are


Cuddly  Kiwis Childcare is a family owned and operated group of early learning  centres which offers safe and quality learning environments through play  for young children.

We  have two well-established childcare centres in Auckland (based in  Goodwood Heights and Papatoetoe) catering for children aged 2 years and  above.   

With  stimulating play spaces and a child-centered curriculum, our aim is to  inspire creativity, imagination, exploration to enhance children’s  emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth to become competent,  capable and confidant learners.

We  believe in empowering children through opportunities, challenges,  offering choices through activities and events in our daily practices so  that they grow in body, mind, heart and spirit and achieve excellent  self-esteem, skills and a positive outlook in life. 

Come join us in nurturing a brighter future for our young leaders of the world.
