Three expertly run Early Childhood Centres

Parnell Trust is an experienced early childhood centre operator, with three centres in central Auckland, two in Parnell and one in St Johns.

Our 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.

Parnell Trust's Green Kids Programme plays 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.

Healthy Heart meals and snacks are a big plus for parents! Our Parnell centres have won the Heart Foundation's Gold Healthy Heart award five times altogether, and our St Johns centre, acquired in November 2016, is working towards the same accreditation. Highly nutritious meals and snacks are made daily by our kitchen team, and available for busy parents to purchase as KidsHQ SuperMeals.

We invite you to find out more about our centres. Take a look at our 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.
