Fun and safe child care centre in Auckland

Biggles Childcare – Because your child is worth it!

At Biggles Childcare we understand what a huge decision it is to entrust others to look after your child. As a mother and grandmother I can assure you that what is most important to us is that your child feels secure and happy at Biggles in Glen Eden. All of our teachers are passionate about their roles and give sensitive, nurturing care. Feeling secure, children are well placed emotionally to explore, learn and have fun.

Due to our relatively small size, our teachers are able to develop close personal relationships with the children and parents. These strong relationships, together with our quality ratios, support us in extending your child’s individual interests and learning. We balance stability and routine with novelty and challenge, and we continuously reflect on and review our practices.

We have an open door policy at all times and when you come and visit Biggles Childcare you will see for yourself that everyone here is committed to creating a loving, happy and home-like atmosphere for your child.

Visit us between 7:30 am to 5:30 pm to take a tour of our very special premises and facilities.
