Providing the best start in life
Barnardos has been doing more to educate and care for Kiwi kids since our first centre opened in 1972. We now have services right across Aotearoa that have helped thousands of children reach their potential.
We know that early education matters. It sets children on the right path for the best educational and life outcomes.
Focusing on children, families & communities
We recognise that every family and child has different needs. We provide tailored early learning services and childcare to ensure children get the best education and care that works. We also respond to the diverse communities we operate in, providing experiences that reflect the values and spirit of each.
Qualified & experienced staff
In all our early learning services we exceed Ministry of Education requirements for early childhood education (ECE) teaching qualifications and teacher certification. Our teachers are committed to delivering high-quality learning experiences for all tamariki.
