Early learning centres

Our unique ECE centres get your children back to nature to grow, learn and thrive

Why are we unique?

Childspace has four childcare centres in Wellington (with another centre opening in Ōhāriu), catering for children from four months to when children transition to school, between 5 and 6 years of age. Our childcare centres are villas and houses located throughout Wellington that have been converted to accommodate groups of children.

This ensures a cosy and nurturing environment for children who spend time outside of their own homes.

All our childcare centres are unique, and run under their own teaching philosophies. Each day is facilitated by the teaching teams who create quality programmes that are safe, stimulating, fun and nurturing environments for children of all ages.

Our teams are passionate about the potential of each child and support the values of individual families.

Each centre is led by a manager and supported by the principal. Together they oversee the educational programmes and personnel within each teaching team.

All our childcare centres are located in Wellington and operate from 7:30am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

Our philosophy

At Childspace we believe that each child is unique and must be treated with acceptance and respect in order to develop to their full potential.

Responsive, reciprocal and respectful relationships between children, teachers and parents/whānau underpin our philosophy.

We provide the very best high-quality care and education for children and their families.


Te Whāriki, our early childhood curriculum is embedded into everything we do and we uphold the curriculum’s vision;

“That children are competent and confident learners and
communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense
of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution
to society”
