Early Years Cornwall St is a quality education and care centre for children aged 3 months to 5 years, conveniently located in Central Lower Hutt.


Our Vision

Supporting a diverse community of learners to reach their full potential.

Our centre environment

When you visit our centre, you will see teachers and children engaged in learning moments that flow from children’s natural interests and desire to play.  Teachers create a physical environment with small, cosy quiet spaces for working in small groups, and our large porch and outdoor area provide space for your child to move and actively explore no matter the weather.  We also have a fantastic outdoor playground that provides a variety of opportunities for your child to climb, jump, bike and have fun with their friends including water play! Our centre consists of three rooms, each designed to cater for the developmental stages of your child as they grow.

Nutritious meals are provided each day by our onsite cook, who creates delicious homemade meals for all children, including any specific dietary requirements and meeting Healthy Heart guidelines. Your children will enjoy social meal times full of discussion at breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.


Community hub

We are located at 3 Cornwall St, nestled in the heart of Lower Hutt City with access to local parks, art galleries, the local library, and Queensgate Shopping Centre only a short walk away for excursions.  Our local community is an extension of our playground providing awesome opportunities for your child to learn about their wider world.

We would love to have the opportunity to discuss how we can best support you and your child.  Pop into the centre anytime to meet us or give us a call or email.

“You have looked after Charlotte since she learnt to walk and now she is ready for school. You taught Jonny the national anthem and the haka! You have celebrated every milestone and achievement of their little lives so far. You have been a big part of our families daily life; we honestly can’t thank you enough! You all help to make this centre a wonderful place for every child.”

“A big thank you to all the teachers who have been involved with Charlotte over the last 18 months! We think you have done an outstanding job. Charlotte always has nice things to say about you and is looking forward to preschool. Thanks for all your hard work!”

“My decision to leave my children when they were so young has been filled with guilt but knowing they have been in such a caring, friendly, safe, stimulating and exiting environment made my decision much easier. I have loved hearing about all their adventures and then reading the teachers version on StoryPark or when I picked them up at the end of the day.”

We are incredibly grateful for the skills and expertise of the staff; they are caring, humorous and really enjoy what they do”
