Millie's House Oxford St Kindy


Welcome to Millie's House, 57 Oxford St

Nau mai kia kainga o Millie’s House. Welcome to Millie’s House.

Hours of Operation
You’ll find us here Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.30pm, focusing on having fun, building relationships and learning through play to grow confident, competent and active learners.
That includes our teachers and whanau too!


Our Centre

Millie’s House Oxford Street Kindy is the kindy of choice in Tawa where children, parents, whānau and teachers build life long friendships.

Aroha - where there is love, there is learning.

This vision is at the heart of our teaching philosophy.

From the moment you walk into Millie’s House Oxford Street Kindy, you feel at home. The kaiako (teachers) and tamariki (children) are only too happy to show you around our place, with spaces for tamariki to engage in meaningful play and quiet spaces for more engaged interactions. Our teaching team support each child's interests and bring excitement, joy, laughter and fun to our world.

We get to know your child, so we are able to find out their interests and then spend time with you to develop your child’s individual learning journey. Every child’s learning journey and special moments are captured and shared with you through personal conversations and on our online learning portfolios on Storypark. Each child has their own learning journal which is recorded on Storypark and is available as a hard copy that is intended for them to revisit their learning. It is a precious record of their magical moments and learning stories that we invite you to contribute to as well.

Our unique school readiness initiative has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident, capable learners and have a successful start at school. We pride ourselves in the care and love we share with the children to support them with the varied skills needed for a successful transition to school such as learning to manage their belongings, their lunchboxes and most importantly how to get along with each other with manaaki, which means to support, respect and care for others.

Our kaiako are motivated and have the experience to provide the very best learning opportunities for your child. Millie’s House Oxford Street Kindy has a strong and productive relationship with the local Primary schools, and together we work towards preparing your child for school.

We offer a range of part-time and full-day care options for children aged 2 to 5 years, and endeavour to suit the needs of our community. We're open weekdays from 8am to 5.30pm, right through the year - only closing for public holidays.


Our Team

Led by our manager Jaana, our team are passionate, dedicated and fun teachers, who are committed to developing partnerships with our learning community, and creating memorable learning opportunities and experiences for all.

Our centre team is supported by a Regional and Operations Manager, as well the other teams and leaders in the Millie's group. Friends and connections in the ECE community, the support of consultants, Professional Development, MOE and ERO all contribute to our ongoing commitment to ensuring we are offering the best to your tamariki.


ERO Report

Because we are one of the newest Millie's centres, joining only in June 2021, we have not yet had an ERO as a Millie's House centre.

Next on the horizon for us will be an MOE relicensing visit - this ensures we are meeting the requirements of the Licensing Criteria. We expect this around October 2021. Then six months later will be our first Akanuku (compliance) ERO review.


Visit us!

You are welcome to visit us any time. Booking a visit helps us to plan and know that we are able to take time out to show you around properly and talk to you.

We’d love to show you our home, welcome you in and make you a part of Millie’s too.
