New Plymouth The CubbyHouse Learn More

Welcome to our Centre

We have a unique, purpose-built centre on Buller Street in New Plymouth, one street back from the coast and right around the corner from town. There are four specifically designed classrooms, split into two infants rooms, a toddler room and preschool room. All rooms face out onto to our amazing adventure playground created, to allow our tamariki plenty of room to run, use their imagination, help with our gardens, learning to care for their environment.

Our centre caters for children aged 3 months – 5 years, so your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development. We are open 7.30am-5.45pm, Monday to Friday. Our amazing team is highly skilled, experienced and nurturing.

We believe that all staff provide respectful and authentic learning environments to encourage children’s natural desire to learn through play and develop social competence. We do our upmost to provide a strong foundation of respectful practice where children develop and grow into, independent, competent and confident learners.  Our environments allow for the tamariki to explore and learn through their natural urge to play and where creativity and curiosity is celebrated, encouraged and supported.

Parents love the rich sense of community, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. It values input from parents, kaiako, whānau, tamariki and our wonderful community.
