Glendene Playcentre

At Glendene Playcentre we believe in empowering parents as first teachers and making the most of the time that we spend with our tamariki in their younger years. We empower our tamariki to initiate play and direct their own learning, through a variety of play areas encompassing physically active, sand and water play, fantasy and family imaginative play, carpentry, clay, paint, playdough and collage, messy play and…. the list goes on!

We have large grounds for our children to explore (including a punga hut), and amazing climbing frames to physically challenge them. We back onto Patts Reserve and have plenty of parking. Our children particularly love messy play and we have our very own mud pit.

We go on at least 4 excursions per term and these have included; Butterfly Creek, the Maritime Museum, Massey Leisure Centre, train trips, visits to West Auckland playgrounds and beaches, a visit up the Sky Tower.

Our members are friendly and fun. We support each other in our roles and work together to ensure our centre is always dynamic and meeting the needs of our whanau/families. If you attend two mixed age sessions per week you are also entitled to a ‘drop-off session’ for your child 2 1/2 years or older.

Above all, at Glendene Playcentre we are about learning and having fun together.

JeMMa's Home-Based Glendene

JeMMa’s Home-based Education and Childcare was founded on the belief that early childhood education plays a major role in a child’s ability to develop skills and learn throughout life. 

As a kindergarten teacher, Jenny Tyrrell could see that children who had a focus of learning whilst in a home environment appeared better equipped to learn in the future. As well as this, children who were well socialised with other children of different ages appeared to cope better than others. 

It was those two key observations which cemented her belief; that a child, learning with other children, in a homebased environment rather than an institutional environment, was the best way to go. And that’s how JeMMa’s started. The name is derived from a combination of the two directors names, Jenny and Martin. 

At JeMMa’s we believe that home-based education and care is the next best alternative to learning at home with Mum or Dad 

Children who learn in a comfortable home-based environment seem to develop strong problem solving, social and learning skills. Because they are in a comfortable, uncrowded environment children they get the chance to develop and learn at steady pace with all the help they need. 

JeMMa’s children receive lots of one-on-one time with their educator, as well as interaction with other children in different age groups. These are two core components in the development of happy, energetic, sharing, respectful, thoughtful, problem solving and fun loving kids. 

Our Philosophy 

JeMMa’s is a quality privately owned family focused Homebased Education and Childcare Service that is committed to ensuring that all children, parents, whānau and kaiako are welcomed and encouraged to play an active role in promoting positive outcomes for our learners. We are guided and inspired by Te Whāriki our early childhood curriculum which encourages us to appreciate that children come into the world eager to learn and we see this as a privilege where we can work in partnership with children, parents and whānau to empower our learners through responsive engaging environments and experiences where they can reach their highest potential and develop an enthusiasm for ongoing learning. 

Building and sustaining quality learning focused relationships with everyone is the essence to who are and what believe is valuable for outcomes for children and their ongoing wellbeing and development. Our nurturing relationships will be underpinned through our Christian values and connection with people within our service and our wider communities.  Our environments will embrace cultural diversity of Aotearoa and our commitment to Te Tiriti O Waitangi will be authentic. 

We view all children as unique learners where they will have endless opportunities to learn through play and develop a range of knowledge, skills, and learning dispositions. This will spark children’s independence, urge to lead their own learning, social skills, curiosity, creativity, discovery, ability to express themselves and things that are important to them. Our kaiako will dedicate quality time with our children where they will nurture those in the moment opportunities and offer the guidance, support, and encouragement that our learners need to blossom and thrive.

Children’s artwork, their photos, and plants are used to decorate the setting as children engage in various learning experiences and build strong relationships in a relaxed and productive manner. Learn more about the care and education we cultivate at Our Kids daycare in Glendene below.

Our Kids Early Learning Centre is a small and homely all-day mixed aged centre providing quality care and education for children aged between 6 months and 5 years. Our teachers create respectful and caring relationships with the children while maintaining close relationships with their family/whānau. Teachers are also confident in supporting the development, well-being, and belonging of children under two years old. They engage in meaningful interactions with infants and toddlers and give enough space and possibilities for free movement.

We here at Our Kids believe that learning opportunities are found both indoors and outdoors. That’s why we’ve assembled an early learning centre that carefully balances both.

The outside environment at Our Kids Glendene provides plenty of exploration zones. Your kids will discover a large sandpit covered by a shade-sail, a beautiful stream fed by a rain-water pump, landscaped planting, vegetable garden, a whare area, a variety of outdoor equipment for physical exercise, and challenge including swings, as well as a new large platform area with a slide.

Magical Years Childcare Centre

Magical years is offering affordable fees and free 30 hour sessions for 3-5 year olds*.

Magical years childcare centre is in Glendene. It is a newly opened centre which offers quality care and education.

Centre promotes mixed-age grouping that bring together children aged 0 to five years old that offers unique opportunities for learning and development. In communities where children are more likely to grow up in smaller families, the benefits of learning from younger or older peers is significant. This also promotes Tuakana Teina concept. We provide flexible spaces that allow children to learn effectively. In such environments children can be supported to access resources, materials and experiences that match their interests and skills as well as those that challenge them to extend their capabilities. Children in mixed-age groups will develop friendships and engage in learning just as they would in same age settings with the added bonus of being able to access peer support and lead learning for other children. These opportunities offer children to develop more sophisticated social skills and to be part of a diverse group.

Magical Years is a purpose built Centre Licensed for 36 children. It opens at 7am to 6pm. It consists of two playrooms: Under2’s (Teina) Over2’s (Tuakana)

The mixed age group also promotes turn taking and sharing. Children with no younger siblings at home have opportunities to ‘be a big sister or brother’ and nurture and help others as well as form relationships with younger children.
