Adventure. Joy. Love.

Elim Early learning Centre is a family focused childcare provider situated in the lovely town of Cambridge.  Over the past 10 years we have established ourselves as the centre with a real heart for the community, and this, combined with our faith-based approach, creates a warm and loving environment with a ‘home away from home’ appeal.  Qualified and passionate teachers provide a child-led and play based learning environment which recognises and supports the individuality of each precious child.  Our large and beautiful natural outdoor area enable exploration and risk-taking for children, within an environment that encourages respect and love for nature.  This includes a lovely vegetable garden and fruit trees, which children learn to care for, exploring the connections between what we grow and eat.

Here is What We Offer!

Hours

We recognise that many of our whanau need to work out of Cambridge and so accommodate travelling needs with longer hours than many other centres.

We are open from 7.15am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday throughout the year and closed for Public Holidays. We accept children from infancy through to school age. Special considerations are given to children under 6 months of age on a case by case basis.

0 - 6 Year Olds

We provide children with excellent multifaceted developmental learning in a faith based environment.  Our programmes will help your child to thrive and prepare them for the school years ahead.

Fees

Our tuition fees are calculated based upon an annual fee, divided by 52 weeks. This way we can distribute the cost through the year, thus keeping your costs down.

Subsidies

20 hours ECE (Early Learning Education) is available and you may be eligible for additional childcare assistance.  For more details about subsidies visit the Working for Families Website www.workingforfamilies.govt.nz.

Our Food

Mealtimes at Elim Early Learning Centre are included as an enjoyable part of our curriculum.  Our in-house cook ensures nutritious quality meals are provided every day and children are often involved in collection of fresh vegetables from the garden and food preparation to support development of self-help skills.  Our table settings are small and intimate, allowing children to enjoy each other’s company and they are given the empowering opportunity to serve themselves in a peaceful and unhurried manner.
