We focus on helping your children discover the joys of learning in our safe and comfortable childcare centre. Beachcomber Kindergarten enjoys a long-standing reputation for delivering a home away from home that your children will look forward to visiting every day.

Located between Howick and Highland Park, our early childhood centre is carefully designed to foster your child’s journey into nature, creativity, exploration, personal expression, curiosity and confidence.

Whether it’s in our busy arts and crafts workshop, colourful outdoor play area or our cosy and inviting learning, reading and playing rooms – your child will be supported on their learning journey from their 2nd birthday to starting school.

After turning five our daughters’ teacher commented on her ‘readiness’ for school. Not only was this in relation to her social and physical skills, but also her academic abilities. We were always pleased we chose Beachcomber as the staff have always been so helpful, supportive, nurturing and understanding. Now we are even happier because they did such a great job with her educational learning as well.

Just thought I would flick you a quick note to say how amazing you and your teachers are. I’m so thankful that you and your team are awesome, kind and caring people. Your kindy is welcoming and all round a special place. You are so accepting and nothing seems to be too hard. The time and effort that you have all invested in both my children means the world to our family. I can’t believe the change in Boston this year has blown us away, he’s excited to come to kindy every day and he is so happy when he is there. As a parent, I couldn’t ask for more. You are all so special to not only Boston but to our whole family.
