Early childhood learning centres

03 October 2023

UC has three early childhood learning centres available. UC students and staff take priority for these centres but they are open to parents in the wider community. Find out about our early childhood learning centres.


The centres offer programmes for new borns to 5/6 years and are based on the principles of Te Whāriki New Zealand Early Childhood curriculum, the centres are committed to effective group sizes, teacher ratios, and the employment of qualified teachers.

Although UC students and staff take priority, the centres are open to parents in the community.
