Welcome to Auckland for Kids

Auckland for Kids is a social enterprise that provides information for families to explore the best of Auckland and beyond.  Have a look at our popular What’s on this weekend guide, School Holiday Programmes for Auckland kids, Afterschool Classes and ActivitiesPlaygrounds and Parks to explore,  Auckland kid friendly exhibitions and theatre guides and more. We only publish events, which we think that parents would be happy driving across Auckland to take your children to and they would enjoy them.

How was Auckland for Kids started?

I am Carol Gernhoefer and live with my family in Auckland, New Zealand. I’m Mum to two wonderful girls who adore art, hip-hop, rock climbing, going to playgrounds and having fun. I have spent a lot of time finding fun things for my own kids to do.  Friends would always ask how did you find out about that? So  I thought I would share what my family have found that’s fun to do with other Auckland families and visitors to Auckland on Auckland for Kids.

Who is the team at Auckland for Kids?

The team is me, my two daughters who are the mini reviewers that always give me their honest opinion on places and events we go.  And of course there is you, Auckland parents and families who contribute articles to Auckland for Kids, or just let us know that a kid-friendly restaurant has opened (or closed) or there is a new playground that we should share with other Auckland parents.

We love to hear your feedback

If there is something you love in Auckland, that you would like us to share please send an email to info@aucklandforkids.co.nz.

I hope you and your family enjoy Auckland for Kids.
