Nau Mai, Haere Mai Ki
Adventure Kids is a newly purpose built, homely-style modern villa. We are tucked away on the rural hills of Silverdale, conveniently located on East Coast Road and within a short travelling distance to the Silverdale shops and Hibiscus Coast Bus Station, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.
Our centre is open 7.00am until 6.00pm. At Adventure Kids we cater for 20 under two year old children and 58 over two year olds, split under different areas.
At Adventure Kids, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development. We pride ourselves on developing strong, solid relationships with our families and we believe communication is vital to the care and education of their child.
Your child will love the well laid out learning corners at our centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection. There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.
Our teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.
Passionate & Nurturing Teachers
Enriched Learning & Play Experiences
Connecting with Nature
The natural world is a giant, open-ended learning laboratory. Children are innate scientists and love to experience the sights, scents, sounds, and textures of the outdoor environment. At Adventure Kids, we are always looking for learning opportunities that embrace nature and we are so lucky that our semi-rural location allows us to embrace our beautiful and natural setting on a daily basis.
Through free play, children spontaneously connect with nature right here in our own playground and outdoor environment. For example, children are often busy building masterpieces with dirt or sand, searching for twigs and sticks, watching worms wriggle through the soil, gazing at clouds, jumping in puddles, or listening to the birds sing.
Our toddlers and pre-schoolers thrive on using their imagination as they become ‘explorers’ in their own environment, doing this means they are encouraged to investigate and learn names of animals, insects, plants, and their purposes on our earth. We love seeing the children learn to care for their centre environment, their community, and the great big world we live in!
At Adventure Kids we recognise and value the environment as a ‘third teacher’. Through our home like country setting, filled with natural open spaces, vegetable gardens and fantastic outdoor opportunities, we strive to provide an environment where our tamariki develop as confident, competent learners who communicate and express themselves as individuals. With a safe and nurturing environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.
"Love the beautiful caring teachers! They really love my daughter as if she were there’s. The care that is given to my daughter is exceptional."
“Love the outdoor setting, awesome teachers! Felt this on the first day my son and I walked through the centre doors. So heart warming, walking into an environment knowing your child's going to have a blast and be well looked after. Seeing my sons face lit up as he greets his teachers and his friends is all that matters to me. Such an awesome centre!"
