Transition to School
Like you, we want the best for your child. So we don’t compromise on safe, supportive, care and education. Our team works hard to ensure your family receives the highest standard of care for your weekly fee, which includes:
- a generous annual leave allowance
- a nutritious midday meal, prepared fresh at the centre daily – so you won’t need to pack kai
- healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks to fuel your child’s play and learning
- our Positive Parenting program – offering tips, advice and support for every family
Because every child has different needs, we ask that you supply your child’s own bottles, formula and nappies for each day.
If you would like to learn more about our fees, enrolment schedules or space availability, please let us know. We’re happy to talk through any questions or provide whatever information you may need, to help you make the best decision for your child and your family.
What’s the first step?
We invite you to pop in for a visit at any time during the day. We’re happy to show you through our centre, so you can experience our loving care for yourself. And because tamariki are at the heart of everything we do, please bring your child along. We’d love to meet your little one, and introduce them to our safe, exciting world of learning.
Why choose our centre?
Since 2017, Kindercare Christchurch City Centre has been providing safe, loving care for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Here, your child will be nurtured alongside others of a similar age and stage of development.
Our indoor and outdoor play areas are designed to provide the nurturing care, fun-filled learning and social opportunities best suited for your child’s needs. In the heart of Christchurch city, our outdoor play areas capture a haven of nature, where green open spaces and mature trees provide a beautiful setting for children to explore, and play.
Our care and learning
Our five safe, loving environments are specially designed to meet your child’s care and educational needs at their age and stage of development. So they’ll be provided with nurturing, immediate care and engaging resources to help them flourish in their learning and development. And through a monthly education plan and individual learning documentation for your child, we’re able to ensure your little one can develop their unique potential.
Kiwi Room (infants room)
We believe every baby deserves to be kept safe and loved, while nurtured to develop their full potential. And that’s what our Kiwi Room is all about. Here, we work with you to integrate your little one’s home routine to ensure they feel settled and a strong sense of belonging in our centre. Along with this foundation of kindness and gentle care, we give them a variety of fun-filled opportunities to learn and grow.
Tūī Room (toddler room)
We believe toddlerhood is the perfect time to help your capable child to develop confidence through hands-on fun. In our Tūī Room, your little one will receive heaps of creative learning opportunities within this safe, loving room, as well as our beautiful outdoor space: it is here that our dedicated Kaiako spend each morning creating invitations to play where your child can build their foundation skills. These include challenging obstacle courses to nurture your child’s curiosity, a sensory trough for tactile learning experiences, and hidden treasures within our sandpit, providing the perfect opportunity for your child to explore and discover.
Pūkeko and Takahē Rooms (preschool rooms)
In this room, we understand the importance of continuing to support your child’s growth and development, through play-based individual and group experiences. And that’s exactly what our safe, loving Pūkeko and Takahē Rooms will provide for your little one. Whether learning on their own or with others, your child will develop their physical, cognitive, social and emotional competencies through activities that challenge them while having fun.
Kōtuku Room (transition to school room)
As your little one nears that big step into primary school, we believe in providing them with the smoothest possible transition through our Transition to School program. Here, we prepare your child for school by helping them develop the skills they need to thrive in a formal learning setting. We offer a number of fun-filled programs and experiences like the 'You Can Do It' program (social and emotional awareness development) as well as activities and resources to introduce your child to early literacy and numeracy. The tamariki will also have plenty of opportunities to learn through in-depth mat times and play-based learning throughout their day.
Our world of outdoor play
We have an awesome outdoor play area – in fact, families who visit comment on the beautiful playground, in the heart of Christchurch city. Your child will love daily time spent exploring, discovering and the joy of physical activity with their little friends. Time and space for movement is essential for your child’s growth and development.
A little about our team

Our passionate Kaiako, who are either fully qualified, and registered, or in training towards their early childhood qualification, are committed to cherishing your child and meeting their individual needs…so they can develop their full potential.
