BestStart's Edukids Remuera is a quality childcare centre situated on the corner of Remuera Road and St Marks Road, convenient to Newmarket train station and motorway access. We aspire to maintain our excellent reputation in promoting stimulation and development for children from 3 months to 5 years. We promote equality and inclusion for children with special needs and work alongside their support group to help them become confident and capable learners. One of our centre's strengths is the home-away-from-home atmosphere.
We are a well-established passionate team who provide children and parents with a loving, caring environment designed to enrich our children and families. The teachers also speak many other languages which helps second language speakers feel more settled and secure in their environment.
Our building is a character old villa with a cascade of rooms (in the over 2’s) that encourages children to be excited and helps teachers to set up new adventures every day! Our guiding philosophy ensures children's interests are followed and teachers plan learning experiences which relate to and extend those interests. Our unique Be School Ready initiative has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident, capable learners and prepared for the next step in their education journey.
The under 2’s area is designed to have easy supervision and quieter spaces for younger infants. The two different playgrounds are spacious and cater for various children’s needs – from learning to crawl on a safe mat, to climbing ladders, mastering balancing, doing tricks on the monkey bars and creating forts!
As a centre we:
- Provide homemade nutritious meals catering for special dietary needs;
- We have parties and celebrations throughout the year such as Christmas, Frozen ice party and Matariki concert;
- Teach children about sustainability through growing our own vegetables and recycling paper;
- Develop strong sense of community by having local walks and inviting community into the centre (eg story-times).
- Provide a variety of extension classes from other companies such as, Twinkle Toes and Playball
We welcome you to visit our quality childcare centre to see how we can help your child become a happy, confident learner.

We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what you child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what's been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

"As parents, we feel it's easy to communicate with the teachers and they are willing to help you to take care of the children as you need. I like the community posts in Storypark, sometimes our whole family sits together to enjoy these photos. There are a lots of different activities everyday as well. Thanks Edukids Remuera for making my daughter so happy." - April 2015
“We were immediately impressed by the centre. It seemed very safe, warm, had plenty of outdoors space for the summer and the teachers and parents were very welcoming. The communication from the centre and the organisation was a level above what we have experienced with other daycare centres and there were plenty of events and social functions too.”
