Street or Road: 58 Bay Road, Kilbirnie
Phone: contact number is not available for new enrolments
Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from infancy
Group / Centre Size: The centre operates on a small and personal scale for children and families. It is licensed for 50 or fewer children. It is what we call a 'boutique' early childhood centre.
Qualified teaching staff: 80% to 100% of teaching staff are qualified teachers (according to funding claimed from the Ministry of Education, last updated beginning of 2020).
Shows Children that Men Can Teach and Care for Young Children Too: In 2019 the teaching team included one or more men. (Note that it is best to have gender balance with children being taught and cared for by both men and women)
Is this service HIGHLY Parent Rated?: THIS SERVICE CANNOT YET BE CLASSIFIED AS A HIGHLY RATED SERVICE. (To be so it needs to have a number of recent positive reviews - at least 5 positive if a small centre, or 10 if a mega-centre or a home-based service)
COMPLIANCE warning: It has a clean record. It's licence was not downgraded by the Ministry of Education in 2019 or 2020 as far as we know (if you want to check on its history before 2019 go to more info below)
My child has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Kilbirnie Early Learners.
From the very first visit we made we felt very welcome and settling in is done to suit both child and parent - so warm and comforting, and no pressure. There are always a great range of activities on offer to suit all interests. The teachers interact really well with the children, and also the parents. They are always happy to answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend Kilbirnie Early Learners.

My children have both attended this crèche over the last 3 years and we love it. The crèche provides a very nurturing environment with plenty of interesting and diverse activities where the children can learn through play. The centre has a positive, welcoming, community feel where parents feel comfortable to visit or stay as they wish (however mine prefer me to leave)
