Porirua Whanau Centre offers a licensed Early Childhood Education (ECE) Centre that follows NZ Te Whariki, the Ministry of
Education’s Early Childhood curriculum, and endorses Ka Hikita, the Maori Education Strategy.

We are multi-cultural, speaking English, Maori and Samoan. Our children learn problem solving, science, music, drama, art, pre-reading, language skills and social skills – all while having fun and being well cared for by experienced, qualified ECE teachers who have a passion for early learning education.

Our childcare facilities are open from 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday, all year round excluding statutory holidays and two weeks over the Christmas period.

We cater to children from 6 months to 5 years old.  The hourly rate is $4.60, but children aged three and four are eligible for 20 hours free care per week as a government subsidy.

We also provide a free pick up and drop off service. For more information please contact reception on 04 237 7749.
