Kia Ora and Welcome to Kids Count Lenore Road

We are licensed for up to 120 children, 20 of whom can be aged under 2 years, so we cater for children from when you need your child(ren) to attend a loving and nurturing environment until they graduate to school.


Kids Count Lenore mirrors the culture of its surrounding families.  With a very strong Pacifica influence, food, love and laughter abounds and our children readily adopt the centre as a second home.  We have a multitude of family and cultural events throughout the year including the graduation of our 5-year-olds.

A purpose-built childcare centre, each age has their own room, which moves from room to deck and a large outdoor play area.

For a list of services, we provide see the Services page.  We will genuinely care for your children and support their development as they evolve as the young individuals they are and to start them on their journey towards reaching their full potential.

What our parents are saying ...

Now things are beginning to become surreal, it was just a tad emotional for me knowing that my boys will be commencing a new chapter in their journey of life.  I just cannot express how grateful I am to all you wonderful staff at Kids Count.  I'm sooh sooh gonna miss this place for it has been apart of our lives for 5yrs and a bit so not only have you all been educators for my boys you are all like our whanau. Ngā mihi mahana Kia koutou Katoa ngā kaiako me nga kaiawhina Kaimahi hoki
