Preschools in Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt

Preschools in the Hutt Valley

Children who are involved in quality early childhood education (ECE) benefit in many ways - they build early competency in mathematics, literacy and logical problem solving as well as developing good social and communication skills. Plus they have fun playing!

Once your child turns three they can have 20 free hours of early childhood education a week until they go to school. The free hours are offered by the Ministry of Education and are only for places where a trained teacher is looking after your child.
