Who are we?

Hutt City Kindergartens have been growing young learners for over 90 years in Lower Hutt, providing quality and affordable early childhood education. Our teaching teams are passionate about providing rich learning environments where children can explore, develop and have fun. We welcome people who can share in that passion.

Our kindergarten

Nettie Riley is located on Witako Street in central Lower Hutt offers an all day, all year service for 2–5 year olds. This is a great option for families who want the kindergarten teaching philosophy and require a longer day service.

The kindergarten is on the ground level of the newly built Hutt Valley Heath Hub with a spacious outdoor area that wraps around the building. This provides a variety of spaces for tamariki to explore, learn and play. Including a sandpit, gardens, climbing equipment, swings and more.

As an all year service, this kindergarten does not close for term break and is open 237 days a year, with a 2 week closure period over the Christmas/ New Year and on public holidays.
