Operating Hours

Taupo Kids Community is open from 7.45am to 5.15pm Monday to Friday.

We offer full and part time care. Part time care options are 4 hours minimum between 7.45am to 12.00 noon and 12.30pm to 5.15pm. There is a minimum daily charge of 7 hours if your child starts in a morning and continues beyond 12 noon.

We are closed on all statutory holidays and for 1 to 2 weeks over the Christmas/ New Year period.


All meals (morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack) are provided by the centre. Our chef prepares a summer and winter menu which contains a range of nutritious and delicious, home style cooked meals incorporating items from all the food groups.
