Welcome to Mt Wellies ELC Limited!

We are a unique, natural and homely Early Childhood Centre in the heart of Mt Wellington. We are a purpose built Centre and have three different classrooms for children aged 3 months to 6 years – right through to when they are ready to go to primary school.

We are a very diverse whanau here at Mt Wellies and we pride ourselves on celebrating children’s uniqueness, culture and identity. Each and every child is loved and cared for as if they were our own. For us, the relationship we have with our children is the foundation for all other learning. When our children feel safe and secure, they are able to unfold naturally as learners and express themselves openly and creatively.

Come and visit us today to see what makes us extraordinary!
