Exceptional educator-to-child ratio

At 1 educator to every 6-7 children, our team of highly qualified and registered educators are able to give each child more attention. Above and beyond the Ministry of Education's requirement of 1 to every 10 children.

Dynamic programme

Licenced by the Ministry of Education, our learning programme is child-focused and constantly evolving to suit children’s interests.

Open & safe environment

Milford Baptist Kindergarten is purpose-built and specifically designed to meet the developmental needs and interests of our children.

Warm & nurturing environment

We take a genuine interest in your child and family. Parent helpers are welcome to help us develop this wonderful community.

Collaborative approach

As a parent, your hopes and dreams for your child sets the tone for their time at kindergarten and we aim to meet your aspirations through recorded learning stories of your child's experiences and continual feedback between yourself and our team.

Weekly planning

Once a week, we collaboratively reflect, assess and evaluate observations, including project learning. The collection of information on learning experiences, art samples and photos are made visible on our display board to present what is being covered and learning stories are updated and evaluated against planned outcomes.

Our Philosophy

We believe children are unique, with a God-given potential to grow as confident and competent learners. Developing healthy minds, bodies, and spirit, our approach ensures each child is respected as an individual and is encouraged to reach their full potential.

We nurture children’s holistic development and learning through play, interaction with, and exploration of our environment. Modeling, purposeful teaching, and repetition, in collaboration with parents and our centre vision, values, and Te Whāriki underpin our education philosophy.

MBK has gone above and beyond our expectations as a kindergarten and it was my lifesaver with a newborn baby. Our very busy, speedy, energetic Timothy has come such a long way since he started one year ago. Timothy’s social skills, confidence, personal growth and development have been incredible! I am so very proud of him and all that he’s achieved, and forever thankful for the love, support, and patience from all the teachers.

The staff and teachers are very special people. They really care so much about the children and their families. I could not have asked for a better kindergarten and start to help prepare our Timothy for school and life. And as an added bonus I’ve made some very special mummy friends who I know I will be friends with for life.


The Bates Family

Our twin boys Alexander and Harrison have been through Milford Baptist and when it was time to choose a kindy for our youngest Nathaniel there was no doubt that he would also attend.

Milford Baptist provides a loving, caring and stable environment which is what you want when your child is embarking on their learning journey. The length of service from many of the teachers and administration staff is indicative of what a great environment it is to work in and therefore learn in. The same teachers that taught our twins are teaching Nathaniel so there is a nice balance of long-serving and new teachers.

They provide a very unique Rockets program which equips the children with the necessary skills so they are ready for school. It has been commented by schools in the North Shore community how capable Milford Baptist children are when they commence school and we certainly experienced this.

The priorities for us in a kindy is that the children are always the main focus, their individual needs are met and they are loved and cared for and that is what Milford Baptist does.

When I walked into MBK I knew it was special and I wanted our children to attend there. The sun-filled open-plan space with easy indoor/outdoor flow makes for a bright, fun, and safe learning environment.

The talented teachers clearly adore the children as demonstrated through their hands on, caring approach to teaching. Our eldest child is about to start school and Luisa and the team at MBK have equipped her with confidence and enabled her to reach her God-given potential through learning and play, providing her with a strong foundation for school.
