Kids World

We aim to provide a caring and stimulating environment, which enhances children's learning and development, encourages their curiosity and independent exploration and positively informs your child's self-esteem as a foundation for their life.

 

While you are working out you can be assured that your child will be having fun and is supported by professional teachers in their development and learning.

 

We offer Les Mills members a top quality Early Childhood Education (ECE) Service. For more information and a free introduction visit to settle-in your child please phone to arrange for a suitable time. We welcome all inquiries.

Booking in

Bookings for casual and permanent places are essential and depend on availability.

Initially, you are required to make contact with the Kids World manager. She will initiate a free enrolment visit which will also help your child to settle in. This visit is also designed to share information, allow you to look around, experience KW and learn about our payment options and booking structure.

Please be aware that casual bookings may not guarantee your child the same space at KW each week. Permanent bookings do and they guarantee you your regular workout.

Due to Ministry of Education requirements a child is only allowed to be booked into one session per day at KW.

Staff/Children Ratio

We are a sessional centre. Our fullly licensed ECE service allows us to take up to 10 children under the age of two from as young as 6 weeks and up to 14 children over the age of two years. Once a child turns 6 they are classed school-aged children and can therefore not attend. 

We operate under the following ratios:

Under 2 year old children - 1 Adult : 5 children
Over 2 year old children - 1 Adult : 8 children

Immunisation & Identification

We are required to view your child's birth certificate or passport as well as to keep an Immunisation Register for all children. This means we must see your child's Immunisation Certificate and a form of identification on enrolment. The immunisation record is found on the back of the Well Child - Tamariki Ora Health Book. We will ask you again when your child is 15 months and again when 4 years old. If you do not choose to immunise we are still required to see a signed certificate from your Doctor or Practice Nurse.  All information is kept confidential.
