Looking for childcare Fendalton, daycare Fendalton or preschool Fendalton?
You'll find what you're looking for at Kindercare Learning Centres in Puriri Street, which is in the dedicated and experienced hands of Louise Brice, our centre director.
“We have established our centre in Puriri Street in a beautiful character home, which has been converted, giving it a very warm and homely feel.
We have two rooms, one being our Babies room which is licensed for sixteen children and our Preschool room, which is licensed for twenty 2 - 5 year old children. Licensed overall for thirty six children, this creates a real family feel and enables teachers/staff to build strong, positive relationships with all our families.
We are hoping to build another classroom in the near future so that we are able to care for more children, while still maintaining our commitment to keeping these relationships as strong as ever.
Kindercare in Puriri Street is conveniently located - close to Canterbury University, Riccarton Road and a number of local primary schools.
I have been working for Kindercare since they took over ownership and management of the centre in July 2004.
After graduating with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from the New Zealand College of Early Childhood Education, I worked in a Christchurch centre for 5 years - starting as a teacher and working my way up to head teacher, before being appointed 2IC. My partner and I then decided to do our OE and left for London in 2009, for 2 years.
On returning to Christchurch in 2011, I knew there was only one company I wanted to work for. So, after applying to Kindercare again, I was employed as a head teacher and then assumed responsibilities assisting the centre director.
In May 2012, I was appointed to the position of centre director at Puriri Street. I find this leadership role challenging and exciting - it has been a great growth opportunity in my career.
If you’d like to find out a little more about the care and education we provide at our centre in Puriri Street, please give me a call or pop in any time for a visit. We’d love to meet you and your child.”
