Our Centre

Early Years Hutt Road is conveniently located on Hutt Road, the perfect location for any family travelling to or from the city. An amazing outlook over the Wellington harbour provides limitless opportunities for children to learn about the environment they are connected to – planes, trains and automobiles as well as the ocean, sky and hills.

At our centre,  children flourish in to confident individuals who know who they are and enjoy actively participating in learning about their interests through planned and spontaneous learning opportunities. We facilitate this  within our  four learning rooms, each catering to age relevant developmental stages of your child. We know that  parents are a child’s first teacher and therefore are  here to support and compliment the learning occurring at home.

We have a resident cook who prepares  nutritious meals cooked fresh daily  for children, including breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon teas. We provide nappies.  These two services means that your mornings can be spent having quality time with your family, rather than packing bags and making lunches. We have a large car park on site, so finding a safe place to park and enter the centre is easy.

Our Vision

Where teachers, children, and whanau encourage each other to reach our potential. Our relationships give us the strength and purpose to try new things and have fun along the way.

Tui Room

Our Tui room teachers  are nurturing, friendly, flexible and respectful. They are fabulous at very quickly establishing  special relationships which enables your child  to discover new things. Having flexible routines allows for this to happen. The Tui room has a lovely calm indoor environment that is adaptable to create cosy spaces. The children of the Tui room can engage in a lot of play in their dedicated outside environment, while observing the older children in the other outdoor spaces.

Weka Room

The children in the Weka room are encouraged and supported to continue developing the skills as they extend into their ongoing toddler development stages.  Our team of teachers  focus on supporting the children in their self-help skills, socialising and independence.  With an outdoor deck area that they share with the older children from the neighbouring preschool room,  a lot of shared learning and fun occurs outside each day, as the opportunity to explore further is promoted as confidence and gross-motor skills naturally develop.

Kea and Pukeko Rooms

Our two Preschool rooms are set up in a way that enables the teachers to support the children to continue to grow as confident and competent learners. Both spaces  are deliberately designed to enable  children  to select resources that are interesting to them and our passionate teachers are alongside them  guiding and extending their  learning. Literacy, numeracy and science are woven throughout the play space, supporting children to ‘Be School Ready ‘ when they embark on their journey to school.

We would love for you and your children to come and visit so we can show you our centre in action sometime soon!!

Storypark

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 wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.  Click here for more information about this fantastic resource.
