With the opening of the new Kenderdine Road Kiwicare Preschool in Papatoetoe, parents and children have something new to smile about.
The technologically innovative childcare centre caters for children aged six weeks to five years bridging the gap between birth and school for working parents and their offspring.
Aware that young children adore bright colours, Resene Lumbersider tinted into Resene Jigsaw (spring green) greets the daily arrivals on the exterior cladding and timber trims. The precast concrete play area is irresistible to children, finished in a primary colour combo of Resene Supernova (bright yellow), Resene Hot Chile (opulent red) and a special blue, while a more restful palette of Resene Quarter Dutch White (off-yellow cream) and Resene Half Dutch White (pale cream) adds warmth to the interior, providing a relaxed backdrop for children's artworks and accessories. Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen features throughout the hard wear and tear interior, an easy-clean option when sticky fingerprints are likely.
With extensive features and daily activities, parents can go about their daily work schedule with the knowledge their littlies are well catered for.
