Looking for childcare Avonhead, daycare Avonhead or preschool Avonhead?
You'll find what you're looking for at Kindercare Learning Centres in Avonhead Road, which is in the dedicated and experienced hands of our centre director, Terri de Geest.
“I have been teaching in early childhood since November 2002, when I gained my Bachelor of Teaching and have worked for Kindercare Learning Centres since 2004.
Our centre is very multi-cultural, giving children and families the opportunity to learn about and celebrate each other’s cultures, and to understand what makes us all unique and special. A variety of events are celebrated throughout the year, including Christmas and the Chinese and Korean New Year.
We are located in close proximity to 3 very good primary schools – Avonhead, Merrin and Russley and have received extremely positive feedback on how well our transition to school room and program prepares children for their next big learning journey – starting primary school.
We have 5 classrooms which are planned and resourced to accommodate the children’s different stages of development, thus providing an environment that supports them in reaching their full potential.
In terms of outdoor areas, our babies, toddlers and preschoolers are able to play outside every day throughout the year in our beautiful environments, due to the Astroturf surfaces.
All our teachers are fully qualified, registered teachers, or are in training to gain their early childhood qualification. Our staff are dedicated, loving and committed to providing the children with fun early education programs, in an environment where everyone feels welcomed and enjoys a sense of belonging.
I am passionate about children, my staff and my centre and I’m committed to ensuring that the children in my care, and my staff, are safe, loved and learning. I have been very fortunate to have been able to watch my own 2 children grow and thrive in the Kindercare environment.
I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you and your child, and sharing our Kindercare world with you.”
About Our Centre:
Our modern, purpose-built childcare centre in Avonhead Road, Christchurch, opened in March 2009. We are licensed to provide outstanding care and early childhood education for children from infancy through to when they are ready to go to school, which is usually at 5yrs of age.
The centre is designed so that children spend time in rooms where the environment is appropriate for their developmental age and stage. Your child will be cared for in relaxed, safe indoor and outdoor environments, with lots of varied and fun-filled opportunities.

We’re open daily throughout the year, (except for weekends and statutory holidays), from 7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
Parents and families are warmly welcome to pop in at any time during the day to visit us, have a look around and find out more about the care and education program we provide. And we love you to bring your child along too so we can meet them and introduce them to Kindercare.
Included in your fee, Kindercare provides a nutritious, cooked midday meal which is prepared at the centre daily. We also provide healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks.
Bottles/formula and nappies are not provided so parents are asked to send what your child needs for the day.
Information about enrolment schedules, fees and space availability are all aspects of our early childhood service that we like to chat to you about personally, so please come in and see us or give us a call and we’ll answer your questions.
