Our Centre

With an inner-city location near Wellington’s much loved Basin Reserve, we have plenty going on around us. We love watching the hum of the terraces from our windows, especially Wellington’s number 1 double decker bus!

We are rich in ethnicity, perspectives, ideas and cultural celebration at our centre and we love all that our central location has to offer. With Te Papa down the road, the city on our doorstep and Oriental Bay a stone’s throw away, there is learning and fun both within and beyond our centre.

During the day your children will be involved in a variety of valuable learning experiences with an overarching philosophy of child-led learning through play. All experiences are based around extending and supporting children’s interests and celebrating their unique identity.

Our daily routine is much like a family routine. Children and adults flow in a rhythm like we do at home, with our younger babies and children having their sleeps and meals at times that suit them and as they happen in their own homes.

Children enjoy a warm and delicious cooked meal straight from our very own kitchen at lunchtime. Breakfast, morning tea and afternoon tea as well as snacks are all part of their day and enjoyed together.

As well as a rich centre based curriculum, our children enjoy regular excursions to the local landmarks as well.


Our Team

Led by our manager Shilpa, our team are fun and enthusiastic teachers who love their centre.

Our centre team and manager is well supported by our Regional Manager, Carol, as well as a suportuive and connected team of managers in the Millie's House group.

Friends and connections in the ECE community, the support of consultants, Professional Development, MOE and ERO all contribute to our ongoing commitment to ensuring we are offering the best to your tamariki.
