Our 2018 ERO Report, released in August, confirms that Parnell Early Childhood Centre is well-placed to promote positive learning outcomes for children:

"Children are confident and eager learners. They are socially competent, play cooperatively and are caring of others. They move freely between the indoor and outdoor environments and are encouraged to be physically active, take care of the environment and make healthy food choices. Children’s wellbeing and their sense of belonging are nurtured through respectful relationships and teachers' valuing of cultural diversity. Children's transitions into and through the centre are well managed."   

We take pride in the report's assessment - it's a recognition of everything we strive for when caring for your child.

Parnell Early Childhood Centre has four separate indoor areas for children, from babies and toddlers to over-twos and pre-schoolers. Outdoors, infants and toddlers have a play space of their own, as well as having access to the large outdoor area used by the over two year olds, which includes a sandpit, trees to climb and covered places for play.

Infants & Toddlers - 2 years and under
In the Kowhai Room we've created an environment that gives babies the space to grow, explore and develop. Toddlers can play, learn and create in the Totara Room. Babies and toddlers also have separate sleeping rooms, recognising that babies often need multiple sleeps during a day while many of our toddlers only need one.

Two year olds
Two year olds move into the Pohutukawa Room. This is a cosy space where teachers work closely with the children to help them develop their social and communication skills and ensure that they are capable, competent and ready to learn when they make the move to the Kauri Room.

When they are approximately three years old, children move to the Kauri Room - a large, well-resourced and engaging space. Here children are able to engage deeply in play and learning, supported by a team of teachers with the training to extend their learning.

In the Kauri Room, older children develop the skills they need to become successful learners at higher levels including some formal learning experiences to support their transition to school.


Parnell Early Childhood Centre has won the Gold Healthy Heart Award three times!



Short Days for 3 month olds to 4 year olds
Parnell Early Childhood Centre offers short days from 8.45am-3.15pm from as little as $32.05 a day for children aged 3 months to 4 year olds - perfectly timed if you're doing the mad rush to drop off and pick up older school-age children, or if you work part time, or even if you just need time to do all the other things in your day. (Three days a week minimum for Short Day enrolments)
