Headstart Childcare Hobsonville Auckland


HeadStart Childcare provides the highest quality childcare and education for children aged from 2 to 5 years old. We are a small exclusive and long established centre with qualified teachers who have been an integral part of our centre for years. We offer a multi-age learning environment where the goal is to build confidence in younger children as well as enhance their language and behavioural skills alongside maximising intellectual potential. Meanwhile, older children benefit from multi-age grouping because it allows them to ‘mentor’ younger children, which builds on their sense of responsibility, and empathy skills.


Our children benefit from establishing long lasting relationships with the same teachers and children for their entire time with us, without the unnecessary  stress of moving rooms every year which some centres need to manage.

Mā te tuakana ka tōtika te teina,
mā te teina ka tōtika te tuakana

The older sibling keeps the younger sibling on the correct path, as does the younger sibling help the older sibling to do what is right.


As an early childcare centre, we believe true holistic development is best achieved through a curriculum of child-led learning and discovery, community awareness and individual acceptance.


Our simple daily structure will see that your child gets the best of everything; adventure, learning, sharing, eating and resting, ready to take on the next adventure. We are open Monday to Friday, 7:30pm to 6:00pm.


HeadStart isn’t a place of work, it’s a home and a family. Most of us are parents so we understand what it takes to leave your child for the day. Rest assured, they are in safe hands – this is our profession and passion.


HeadStart operates on a full day structure, and offers 20 Hours ECE funding for children from the age of 3 to 5 years.


Proud to be locally owned and operated, Headstart is an important part of the Hobsonville community, helping grow the hearts and minds of 2,000 children over the last 25 years.


HeadStart is a fun-filled place with emphasis placed on growing our children holistically. Our activities are aimed at enriching our children’s lives with opportunities to explore, discover and play.

Headstart Childcare ERO Report


An ERO review looks at how an early learning service or school reaches positive learning outcomes – knowledge, skills, attitude and habits – for all children and young people. Their review process works with an early learning service or school’s own evaluation processes. It also supports a culture of ongoing improvement.
