History

From Humble Beginnings

“During the last 20 years of its operation hundreds of children have attended and graduated from Kiwi Supertots.”Husband and wife team HP & Darshi Luthera founded and established Kiwi Supertots Learning Centre Ltd. in 1992.  Since opening  their first centre in Papakura as a fully licensed private childcare for 0 – 5 year olds, hundreds of children have attended and graduated from Kiwi Supertots.

Company CEO and Director Darshi has over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Education and Leadership in New Zealand and USA.  HP and Darshi migrated to New Zealand from USA in 1990 where they decided to passionately commit their time to the Education industry.

Branching Out

With the successful operation of Kiwi Supertots Papakura, opportunities opened for Kiwi Supertots to branch out further. In 2004, Kiwi Supertots opened its Royal Oak branch. A cozy boutique style centre designed to maximize space and accelerate learning.

In 2009, Kiwi Supertots branched out to Botany.  This time, opening a unique and custom designed centre with a large open plan that creates warmth whilst allowing for spacious indoor and outdoor flow.

Teachers at Kiwi Supertots have a passion to for quality learning and care for the children in our communities.  Our teachers are qualified and motivated to work with children and teach them the learning skills with love and care.

Opening the doors to Technology and Innovation

“The iPad has now been extended as a part of the Kiwi Supertots curriculum to be used by all centres.”Kiwi Supertots has established itself to be a market leader in Quality Early Childhood Education.

In 1993, Kiwi Supertots foresaw the need for children to be exposed to computers from a young age and they pioneered to introduce computers to the children of their Papakura centre.

This initiative turned out to be a positive head turner for families and the education industry in general.

Today, computers are used as a common learning tool across many childcare centres.  Kiwi Supertots continues to apply efforts to lead by example in quality care.

In 2011, they introduced the iPad into their Botany centre. The result of this initiative proved yet again to be highly successful, with children learning at an early age how to apply and learn from today’s technology. The iPad has now been extended as a part of the Kiwi Supertots curriculum to be used by all centres.
