Birkdale Kauri Kids

About the centre

Grow. Achieve. Inspire.

We're a small, homely centre on the North Shore. We've been at the heart of the Birkdale community for almost 40 years. During this time we've seen generations of whānau return with their tamariki, as well as attracting new whanau to the community.

We've built long-standing relationships with the wider community, local schools and staff from the adjoining community house.

Our wonderful natural outdoor environment includes a large, covered, all-weather sandpit and a child-size whare, complete with carvings and children's artwork.
