ABC Somerfield is a small, intimate childcare centre situated in the quiet suburb of Somerfield, catering for 30 children aged between 2-5 years. We boast a lovely safe, green playground and a cosy warm villa with an environment enhancing pockets of learning and discovery.
Our small team of Qualified and Registered Teachers are in tune with current education trends and use their experience and expertise to deliver individual programmes of high quality. We provide opportunities for the children to be extended through project work, literacy and numeracy initiatives. A Be School Ready initiative is offered that ensures a successful transition to Primary school.
Close family/whanau relationships are at the forefront of our values and parent aspirations for their children are respected and enhanced.
We are proud of the close connections we have with the local community through excursions and a variety of visitors to the centre, including Pitter Patter Dance who provide onsite dance and movement for interested families.

We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

“Wonderful teachers, my son loves going to preschool. I love the way they’ve encouraged his friendships. The sandpit is brilliant and any other roadwork/ building site activities are great. The visit from SCIRT was an awesome idea. Thanks so much.”
“It was great to see the children having so much fun on such a beautiful day. Preschool is so much an extension of home and family. The children are always happy, confident and caring of each other. G will keep her memories of this time through the rest of her lifetime. Long may you all continue to shine.”
