Our Story

"It is our ongoing vision to create the next best place to home..."

We established Prebbleton Childcare in the year 2000 with the dream of creating a beautiful space for the youngest members of our community to be nurtured, cared for and educated. In the early days, Prebbleton was a humble farming community on the outskirts of Christchurch. Over the years, we have grown with our community opening our Nursery in 2005 and our Kindergarten in 2010.


We believe it is vital for children to feel secure and valued when in our care. Therefore, our enduring vision is to create 'The Next Best Place to Home'... home representing a place of sanctuary and comfort, where we can be with our family, relax, laugh, be heard and be accepted. This notion of home underpins the service we offer our families.


We feel it is essential for children to engage with and explore a natural environment and to have fun while doing so. With this in mind, we offer extensive, well-considered play spaces, plenty of natural resources, large trees (attracting bird life) and an earthy colour palette throughout (to reflect our rural roots). We have organic gardens, chickens that lay eggs, rabbits, guinea pigs and budgies. Our pets are a part of our centre family.


We understand it is essential to have warm and caring teachers who passionately commit to teaching children to be 'lifelong learners' while fostering solid relationships with children and families. Therefore, we have carefully selected our teaching team because they can demonstrate these qualities that are important to our service.

With this in mind, we hope you feel like you have come home when you walk through our door! We warmly welcome you and your family to our service...
