Elim Early Learning Centre is a community based 'not for profit' early learning centre, designed to meet the needs of parents. We also provide an affordable early childhood education for children from families who prefer to have their children at home, but want the opportunity for them to learn with and alongside other children in a programme based on Christian principles.
This project is something we had considered for a number of years and it has seen rapid development since opening in January 2009. Although originally designed to meet the growing need for 'extended hours', we have found our niche in providing a values based learning centre in the Cambridge community. It is also a natural expansion from the out of school programs (OSCAR) already being run by the Cambridge Elim Community Trust.
Life is an adventure and through loving relationships in a faith based enviroment we celebrate the unique identity of each child. Through play wenurture our tamariki to be curious learners and empower them to be explorers of their unfolding world.

MATATOA Adventure Unraveling children's learning is a treasure that we cherish. Tamariki are empowered to curiously explore their world through play
