Welcome to Mt Wellies Childcare in Carbine Road, Mt Wellington. We welcome you into the centre with lovely New Zealand Ferns which lead you through to a natural reception area, separate age appropriate rooms and fantastic outdoor playgrounds.
The centre showcases natural design that ensures every child is engaged in meaningful learning experiences, with NZ ferns, rocks, tunnels, bridges, bike tracks and more. Your child will be supported in each of their developmental stages and allowed to learn at their own pace in this wonderful environment. Your child will be welcomed every day with our initial focus being to ensure they develop a strong sense of belonging. They will be encouraged to explore, to share, to learn to become confident and competent learners, ready for their next step in their lives.
At Mt Wellies we encourage children to become explorers of their own learning within a well-resourced learning environment surrounded by positive relationships. We are family orientated and love spending time with you and your child. Come in and visit us and we will love to show you around our fabulous centre. We look forward to welcoming you to Mt Wellies!
