Busby Street Early Learning Childcare Centre is a well-established licensed all day childcare in Blockhouse Bay, which provides quality education and care for children between 3 months and 5 years of age. We have an excellent reputation, and in fact the centre has been in our community for 40 years!

Our license is for 36 children, so being a small centre we have the advantage of a family-like environment, where the staff are able to get to know your child really well and work in conjunction with family and whanau to enable children to achieve their full potential. We genuinely believe that "small" is best for infants, toddlers and young children during these very important formative years in their life.

Being located in a quiet street less than 5 minutes drive from the Avondale, New Lynn and Blockhouse Bay shops, we are so lucky to be away from traffic, road pollution and noise. The staff are an extremely professional and motivated team and we have created a comprehensive early childhood curriculum which is brimming with variety, is highly interactive and full of fun for all age groups. The curriculum includes a transition to school programme.

We are very proud of our ERO report, and we encourage you to read it so that you can feel confident in letting us be part of your family in the development of your child.

Our best kept secret is the large natural grass playground hidden behind the bungalow. The children just love the space to run around and they never get bored as there is plenty of equipment for them to enjoy.

We offer 20 hours ECE to all 3 and 4 year olds, and can also assist with WINZ Child Support subsidies. If you have any questions please give us a call, or pop in and talk to our friendly staff.
