Introduction to St Johns Early Childhood Centre

St Johns 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.

Parnell Trust acquired the St Johns centre in November 2016. Since then, we have made comprehensive changes, including to the curriculum and teaching staff, introducing Gold Healthy Heart Award-winning meals and snacks, and renovating the centre's building and grounds.

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

The boutique centre is licensed for only 26 children, including up to 16 under-twos. Babies and toddlers have a separate area where they can safely and confidently explore and grow. The huge outdoor play area provides a safe and exciting environment for children. 

St Johns Early Childhood Centre is located close to main arterial routes to be perfect for parents commuting from Auckland's Eastern suburbs. We're located in a residential street just 500m from the St Johns / College Roads roundabout and 1.5km from the Glen Innes shops. The centre is also accessible by public transport, on a bus route to the Glenn Innes shops.
