We are located right in the centre of town across from Queen Park. We currently hold a licence for 75 children and we have a dedicated team of teachers who have been able to foster positive relationships with family, whānau and the wider community.

Our learning spaces are separated across three different classrooms and we are able to provide nutritious meals each day. As a result of increased occupancy, we are a growing team who value the support we receive from one another and enjoy being able to work collaboratively with one another.

We have an opportunity for a passionate ECE teacher to join us in the under two's toddler room on a full-time basis.
