You'll find what you're looking for at Kindercare Learning Centres in Clyde Road, which is in the dedicated and experienced hands of our centre director, Jeannie Steer.
“Situated between Canterbury University and the Westfield Mall, our multi-cultural childcare centre is licensed for up to 52 children and is divided into 3 rooms.
Our Tui room cares for the babies and children up to the age of 2 years old. Our Pukeko room cares for children from 2 years to 3½ years of age and our Kea room has children from 3½ years to 6 years old. There are 3 teachers in each room. These ratios enable us to operate well above the Ministry of Education required ratios.
Our centre offers a separate outdoor area for our children under 2 years old and our spacious playgrounds have many beautiful, mature trees which provide shade on hot days, as well as lots of special areas for the children to explore.
We have a team of wonderful friendly early childhood staff who work very closely together. During the day, our teachers provide varied activities that extend the children through their interests.
A visit to our centre will show you how the children’s work is valued as it is displayed on boards around the room. Through open communication, teachers build very special relationships with our children and their families.
At our centre in Clyde Road, we provide an environment that is welcoming, fun and homely; children are genuinely loved and cared for.
Our dedicated and committed team ensure that children are kept safe and given exciting opportunities to extend their learning and development.”
About Our Centre:
Our spacious, purpose-built childcare centre in Clyde Road, Riccarton, Christchurch, came under Kindercare ownership and management in July 2004. 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), 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 early 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.
