Methven Pre School Learning and Child Care Centre is a community based service that is run as a non-profit organisation, situated in the village of Methven, only 10km from the base of the world class ski resort – Mt Hutt Ski Area. The curriculum we offer is based on Te Whariki – the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum and we believe that children are our primary focus, with each child bringing their unique and exclusive set of capabilities and needs to our centre.
Please browse our site for information regarding our centre, settling in processes for children joining us, and our enrolment form. Please feel free, at any time, to come in for a visit to look over our top class facilities and meet the staff who will be looking after your child.

Our Team

Every child needs an established relationship with one teacher who is the child’s special ‘Key teacher’ who knows routines, likes, dislikes and strengths.

Our Facilities

 We are proud of our facilities both inside and out and believe they enhance the warm, friendly and fun environment that children and staff alike can enjoy

Daily Programme

 A range of experiences is provided throughout the day which supports children in the development of perceptual and sensory motor skills
