About Us...

Designers and owners Nikeeta Singh and husband Dr Darius Singh had the vision of a magical and inspirational family environment of learning and fun for their own children 5 years ago.  Growing up in the neighbourhood (off Boundary Rd and Donovan St in Blockhouse Bay), they found the perfect location on Boundary Rd to bring their dreams into reality with Magic Kingdom Childcare. They bring with them a passion and commitment to families in the local community to create a centre that is one of the most talked about, personalised, inspirational and high quality early childhood education centres in town. Since their dream and vision, they have been spending almost every waking hour designing and adding to the centres' unique and inspirational environment for children.

“... I wanted to include as many wishlists as I could from my own childhood", says Nikeeta, "...starting with something I always dreamt of like a castle on a cloud, enchanted forest, climbing tree, and a hobbit cave. We then continued to add personal touches and modern learning centre facilities like audio visual systems, children's IT area,  KIDCAM for parents to view our rooms from reception, and online learning portfolios with our patent pending Learning Roots and Shoots program. These things and more would make any parent wish they could go back in time and relive kindy all over again and its these personal wishlists together with our fantastic teachers that we hope will make Magic Kingdom become one of the most talked about early childcare centres in NZ…”


Having gained several years’ experience in the ECE sector and met with hundreds of parents (and listening to their concerns and wishlists) over this time, Nikeeta became convinced of her own philosophies and unique learning style in a family centred, warm environment. Supported by her husband (a former university Professor who currently serves as an Executive Board Member of the NZ Early Childhood Council), she decided to start up a child care business to pursue their shared dream – to develop an innovative and inspirational early child hood education centre in NZ that they would be proud sending their own three children to – the ultimate litmus test.

"...We firmly believe that our quality, performance and trusted reputation depends on strong and balanced family foundations, and so our entire foundation for Magic Kingdom grows out of our core philosophies from which our values, vision, mission and outcomes become visible to you and your child through our wonderful teachers every day and in every way..."
