Kindercare Upper Hutt
I’m passionate about providing the very best outcomes for your precious child, while in our care. I really enjoy watching the growth and development of each child, and how they acquire new skills—whether that be taking their first step or mastering a tricky puzzle that they’ve spent a lot of time trying to complete.
What I find so rewarding are those times when I’m out in our community, and I see or hear about tamariki who I have cared for and educated. Knowing that my team and I have played a part in that child’s life and their early development is such a privilege.
This is such an amazing time in your child’s life. And my team and I are honoured to be able to share it with you.

- Kai is included. We provide high-quality plant-based whole-food meals for tamariki—all cooked on-site and prepared with love.
- We offer a generous leave policy because we understand the unpredictability of children’s absences.
- For the 3–5 year old preschooler, we offer a kindergarten-style program from 9am–3pm up to 20 hours a week.

Life At Our Centre
Over the years, our children have been well cared for and loved, and our experience has been one of partnership with the team. They always show a genuine interest in the progress and growth of our children, both educationally and socially. The learning program is fun for the children as they explore and develop life skills, and the food is nutritious and really tasty!
Kindercare provides our son with incredible learning and social opportunities that I genuinely believe he wouldn't get even if I was able to stay home with him! The dedicated team demonstrate a genuine respect, care and love for him and for our family. They cater to his individual needs, allowing him to develop confidence and character. We absolutely love the way Kinder"cares" for our child.
We just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our son’s transition to your centre. He comes home every day sharing a new story or song that he has learnt. He is very excited to come to Kindercare every morning and we think he secretly likes the "little toilets" and the "big sink" where he washes his hands. He loves the activities, his new friends, the great mat adventures and his Teachers—we wish we enrolled our son here sooner.
