Hands on learning Fun with the arts

We would love the opportunity to show you and your family around our beautiful centre and introduce you to our friendly staff.  You can ring to arrange a time however our open-door approach means you are able to pop in whenever it is most convenient for you.



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.

Enrolment Options

We offer a choice of a 6, an 8.5 or a 10-hour day with a minimum enrolment of 2-3 days depending on your child’s age.

We do offer subsidised care for families with special circumstances and these can be applied for by speaking with the Centre Manager.



Fees are dependent on the age of your child and the length of their day.
Our fees range from:
- $96 - $250 for children up to the age of 2 years
- $48 - $155 for children 3 years and older

We recognise that life happens and so to support our families we provide fee discounts for absences due to illness, family holidays and public holidays with special discounts over the Christmas and New Year period. Additional days are provided for children under the age of 2.

Creating is fun


We offer 20 hours ECE and you may be eligible for some childcare assistance.  For more details about subsidies visit the Working for Families Website www.workingforfamilies.govt.nz.

Parent Testimonials

My daughter started at Elim when she was one. I truly believe that she's in a supportive and nurturing environment with teachers who care enough to know how to respond to her needs. Every morning they take time to settle her and when I arrive in the afternoon she is always happy and engaged with a teacher.
She is exposed to so many amazing learning experiences by diverse staff with a huge range of talents and skills. I love Elim and would recommend it to anyone.

One of the many things I appreciate about Elim Early Learning Centre is the interest the staff and teachers take in the whole family, not just my toddler. When we come to pick up my toddler, my other child is greeted by her name and often find her engaged in conversations with the staff. Elim has welcomed other important people in my toddler's life into the centre during visits and special occasions. 
This has really helped her sense of belonging, as the connection between her home and centre has been developed and kept strong.
