Pink Construction worked with Lifestyle Architects on the Kea Kids Centre in Robertson Road, which opened in October 2016, and is one of five centres owned and operated by Ferns Education Limited. The centre is licensed for 55 children, including 15 children aged up to 2 years. It provides full-day care and learning programmes in a purpose-built facility.
Three separate rooms cater for different age-related groups of children. The centre's philosophy focuses on creating a quality 'home away from home' environment. Whānau and community involvement in the curriculum and children's learning is encouraged. Māori and Pacific perspectives and languages are promoted with a commitment to the bicultural heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand. Meeting the needs of a diverse and multicultural community is also a focus.
