Our Story

We provide full day and sessional education and care for children, from 6 weeks to 5 years. Our centre caters for up to 54 children per session, includes 10 children less than the age of two years.

The multicultural nature of the local community of Glendene in West Auckland is reflected in the children and families attending the centre.

Our Vision

Learning Steps Childcare is the place for your child to learn, grow and develop their own potential. By having a semi-structured learning environment, direct contact with parents/whanau and community we aim for the children to gain social, cultural and emotional competence and have a great beginning to their learning journey that will allow them to be life long learners.

Our Staff

We have passionate, experienced and dedicated teachers who provide quality care and education for children. Our teachers are NZ qualified or are on the pathway to qualifications. Our teachers are also first aid qualified.

Our Environment

We are proud of our friendly, home like environment. Our open door policy grows strong partnerships between parents and teachers. Our large playground provides an opportunity for different age groups to play and interact together in turn which stimulates their learning.

An environment where community and multi-cultures are respected, valued & involved in your child’s learning journey. Each area is designed to include stimulating resources and activities that are full of fun, inspire learning and build confidence.

What We Offer

Better Teacher To Child Ratios

Our caregiver to child ratio is 1:3 for babies, 1: 6 for toddlers & pre-schoolers. These ratios are higher than ministry requirements resulting in better care of your child.

Portfolio Folder

Your child will have a folder for the time they are at our childcare centres. This book shows the learning and development your child has made while at the centre. Including a hard copy we also have an online copy for you and your whanau to enjoy. You will be sent an invite once your child is enrolled.


We carefully select our resources to make learning fun and educational. Our resources are open-ended where children are encouraged to use their imagination, hence fostering creativity. All our resources are age-appropriate.

Nutritious Meals

All our meals are planned using NZ heart foundation guidelines and are cooked by our chef in the centre. Special emphasis is made on 5 plus a day fruit and vegetables. Our menu takes into account children’s special needs, for food allergies or special dietary requirements.
If you have any cultural or religious dietary requirements, please let us know and we will adapt to suit.

Ongoing Teacher Education

We invest heavily in the continuing education and professional development of our educators enabling us to provide quality education to your child. We employ specialist consultants who visit centres on a regular basis to provide support to centre staff.


We believe in enhancing kids abilities & skills through stimulating environment.
