The Village is an early childhood education centre providing quality care and education for children from birth to five years.
At The Village, we celebrate diversity and individuality while helping to prepare children to become contributing members within the global community. Relationships between children, carers, parents/whanau and the local community are a key focus of our programme, and we welcome family participation in all the children’s activities.
The Centre is divided into three areas to enhance our ability to cater to the needs of each age group and provide appropriate educational experiences for each child.
Our qualified, experienced staff members provide a nurturing environment where children can explore their own interests and learn to become independent in preparation for school. Each area has an outdoor playground with activities designed to be both challenging and safe, and there is a large nature area that can be enjoyed by all. We encourage children to respect and care for their environment, and help to make them aware of ways to increase our sustainability through activities such as recycling, worm farming, and building a natural playground. The Village also has a number of pets that the children help us to care for, learning responsibility and respect towards living creatures.
The Village offers flexible hours from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM to suit the needs of busy families. All three, four and five year-olds receive 20 hours free ECE with no requirement to attend additional paid hours. WINZ subsidies are available, and we are happy to help you apply for funding. We also offer a free, one week trial period with absolutely no further obligation.
We would love to introduce you and your family to The Village, so please feel free to contact us below for more information or stop by anytime!
