Kind Hands - Early Childhood Education

Kind Hands recognized the need for an Early Childhood Education center that caters for our medically fragile children or children with a disability. We are first of our kind throughout NZ to both Registered Nurses and Trained Early Childhood Teachers working alongside each other in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children.
