About us

Wadestown Crèche is a high quality Early Childhood Education Centre offering part-time sessions (8.20am - 12.30pm/2.30pm) for tamariki aged 12 months - 4 years. It's owned and managed by parents on a not-for-profit basis.

Our team of experienced fully qualified kaiako supports each child’s development and learning through play, rich and varied experiences and stable routines. The supportive and nurturing environment enhances the transition from home for tamariki and their parents, and encourages tamariki to develop their independence and social skills.

We value and encourage parents’ active participation in our management committee, and our parent help system, which ensures an excellent adult-child ratio for all our sessions. In the recent parents satisfaction survey the excellent ratios and welcoming staff were frequently mentioned as the greatest strengths of the crèche.

"The crèche provides a safe, structured, but stimulating environment, allowing the children to develop and learn both as individuals and socially. In a matter of days, our child was really comfortable and she has turned into a confident and happy crèche member. And this is all due to the quality of the staff at the crèche" - Parents Satisfaction Survey 2018
