Welcome to KidzWay Early Learning Centre

A place where children and families can access quality care and education in an atmosphere of Christian love and acceptance.


We are a community-based not-for-profit, full-day centre located in Tapanui, West Otago. Licensed for 30 children, from 2 years old to school age.


KidzWay provides a safe and secure environment for children to learn new skills and experience a range of activities.


Our setting inspires creativity, problem-solving skills, maths, science, music, drama, physical activity and language, with a Christian component included in natural ways.

Our Programme

Based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki, our programme covers the principles of empowerment, holistic development, family, community and relationships.


We acknowledge the importance of biculturalism and the Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, and are inclusive of te reo and nga tikanga Māori in our planning for children. Our Christian character is delivered by incorporating virtues, Bible stories and prayer.
