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.
Monday to Friday 8:00am – 5:00pm. Closed all statutory holidays.
Our hourly rate for childcare is $5.10 per hour. Booking outside the minimum hours may be accepted on a casual basis only if space is available due to cancellation.
We will continue to accept casual bookings outside the minimum booking hours when spaces are available.
Methven Pre School (Methven Creche Inc) will provide quality early childhood care and education which is accessible to the local community.
It is our priority to work in partnership with parents/whānau; showing mutual respect and communicating with openness and honesty.
