Welcome to Nursery

For children aged 3 months – 2 years.

Castle Kids Nursery where we can lie on the grass under a canopy of Kohekohe trees watching the Fantails flitting back and forth and listening to the bell-like tones of the Tui, rock in a wooden boat with our fishing line and use our hands to create something beautiful with paint. We love to sing, dance and play an instrument creating joyful music. We love mucky play and listening to stories.

You and your little ones can experience all these activities and more, in a family environment. Our low teacher-child ratios are above what is expected by the Ministry and ensure quality care.

Our unique team of multi-talented educators welcome you; spend time with you and your child getting to know you as they nurture, play with and teach your child at our wonderful centre.

Our “Rainbow Room” offers a calm environment with loving, caring teachers, the room being especially dedicated to nurturing and caring for our babies and younger children, stimulating young minds with lots of natural sensory experiences.

Our “Ark Room” offers a fun setting with teachers on hand to guide and challenge the older children as they move into the next stage of their learning.

We are one family working, loving and learning under one roof.
