The Auckland Kindergarten Association (AKA) is a charitable trust that has been providing quality early childhood education since 1908.
The AKA is New Zealand's largest kindergarten association with over 9,000 children going to one of our 107 public kindys throughout Auckland every week. Our Kindys provide the highest quality service and the organisation is widely respected.
At all the AKA Kindys we employ only fully qualified teachers, who have an early childhood teaching diploma as a minimum qualification and hold a current Teacher Registration Practising Certificate.
Our Kindys reflect the diversity of New Zealand society, and are open to all children and their families. Cultural diversity is celebrated for its ability to enhance and enrich the learning environment
What makes us different?
We value an enriched, safe, and dynamic learning environment for young children. We encourage our children to make their own learning choices, solve problems, observe, and explore at their own pace, with support from teachers, parents, wider whanau and their peers.
