Kids Club

Welcome to Les Mills Kids Club New Lynn. We offer children and families a safe, stimulating and caring learning environment, where children are valued as unique individuals.

We are trained educators who recognise that children learn best through play or interaction as well as individual exploration. As educators, we work hard to ensure that expectations for children are consistent, and that opportunities to learn are not limited by age, gender, ethnicity, ability or background.

We follow Te Whariki - the national early childhood curriculum, which focuses on ensuring that children enjoy a sense of well-being and belonging, and have opportunities to explore, communicate and contribute. We value open-communication with parents and families and the diversity of our community. We are committed to our on-going learning so that children might reach their potential in all areas of development.
