Welcome to Dot Kids!

Our centre provides a ‘home away from home’, nurturing and cosy environment, with spacious outdoor play areas.

Nestled under the lovely backdrop of the Remutaka Ranges, in the beautiful Wairarapa Region, we offer excellent care & education for local families in the community.

Our centre caters for children aged 0-5yrs and holds a license for a maximum of 50 children. So, your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development. We are open 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday.

Your child will love the well laid out learning corners, consisting of family play, creative art corner and a quiet space for reading and reflection.  There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.

Our qualified, experienced teachers are warm, welcoming and fun. They guide our tamariki to engage in challenging experiences. We treat all children with respect. Plus, we provide equal opportunities to ensure your child gets the best start in life.

Parents love the rich sense of community, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. It values input from parents, teachers, whānau, children and our wonderful community.

"Donna and the team are super amazing! We have been using this centre for 2 years now and we love it so much. Even with one child with severe food allergies, the wonderful cook is so accommodating and has full communication with me when the meal plans change, or is trying something new. With my other child who has dyspraxia they helped me get a great team of people like speech therapists and early intervention teachers to help at home and within the centre. They have always made us feel safe and welcome, and the kids just adore their teachers. Highly recommended Dot kids to anyone!"

"You guys have been absolutely amazing!!! Awesome procedures in place throughout level 3 and even now in level 2 in the midst of a pandemic. Feels so good knowing my boy is in a safe environment so that I can continue to work and not worry. Hands up to all of the staff, you are amazing and are very much appreciated."
