Three expertly run centres in central Auckland

Parnell Trust has more than 20 years' expertise in early childhood education. We have three centres in central Auckland - two in Parnell and one in St Johns.

About Parnell Trust
Parnell Trust, a not-for-profit charitable trust, has been providing services for the community since 1982.  Looking after children is a big part of what we do. In addition to our early childhood centres, we look after hundreds of school children each year in before and after school, and holiday programmes. From Parnell Community Centre, which we manage for Auckland Council, we offer classes and social activities for adults, venue hire and our Parnell Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. 

About our Centres
Parnell Trust’s centres accept children aged from three months to five years old and offer a warm, stimulating and fun environment where your baby or pre-schooler will be nurtured and cared for by experienced and qualified staff.

Our Green Kids Programme lays a core role in life and learning at our centres. It builds on the Heart Foundation's Healthy Heart initiatives and encompasses healthy eating, physical activity, food and nutrition learning curriculum programmes and a commitment to extend these healthy messages into the wider community.

We've won the Heart Foundation's Gold Healthy Heart award six times. The Healthy Heart meals and snacks we prepare each day for the children in our care are a big plus for parents!  Our award-winning KidsHQ SuperMeals are available for busy parents to buy from our centres.

We invite you to find out more about us. Take a look at our centres' Facebook pages to see what our children get up to!


Please call us to arrange a visit. Contact details can be found on each centre's web pages and on the map below.
