Introduction to Gladstone Park Early Childhood Centre

Gladstone Park Early Childhood Centre offers children quality care, great teacher ratios, excellent outdoor and indoor play areas and the amazing health and activity benefits of our Green Kids programme. We've won the Heart Foundation's Gold Healthy Heart Award three times and our children eat nutritious chef-made meals and snacks.

Our centre accepts children aged from three months to five years old and offers a warm, stimulating, fun and family-focused environment where your baby or pre-schooler will be nurtured and cared for by experienced and qualified staff.

The purpose-built centre, located beside a park, provides a safe and exciting environment for children. The small group of babies and toddlers have a separate area where they can safely and confidently explore and grow. Older children play and work together, experiencing activities that promote their development. Each day four year-olds have opportunities to develop numeracy and literacy skills to support their confident transition to school.

Gladstone Park Early Childhood Centre is easily accessible from Auckland's CBD, major routes and motorways and has convenient off-street parking for safe pick up and drop off.

NEW Short Days for over 2 year-olds
We offer Short Day care from 8.45am - 3.15pm for 2 - 5 year-old children. We require a minimum three days a week enrolment for Short Days.

Short days can be perfect for children and parents:

  • To introduce children to an early childhood centre
  • To coincide with drop off and pick up times for school-aged children
  • To prepare children for starting at school
