This new Kindergarten located on Witako Street in central Lower Hutt offers an all day, all year service for 2-5 year olds. This is a great option for families who want the Kindergarten teaching philosophy and require a longer day service.

The Kindergarten is on the ground level of the newly built Hutt Valley Heath Hub with a spacious outdoor area that wraps around the building. This provides a variety of spaces for tamariki to explore, learn and play. Including a sandpit, gardens, climbing equipment, swings and more.

Inside the Kindergarten tamariki will discover a range of activities and natural resources in a modern setting. This spacious area also features a dedicated sleep room for tamariki who need to nap during the day.

We are dedicated to providing the best education for tamariki with a 100% qualified and experienced teaching team.

As an all year service, this Kindergarten does not close for term break and is open 237 days a year, with a two week closure period over the Christmas/ New Year and on public holidays.

Nettie Riley Kindergarten is part of Hutt City Kindergartens and joins the 19 Kindergartens under our Association located across the Hutt valley.

About the building
Tamariki are sure to find the building itself fascinating with its exposed beams and bolts, all indicators of the engineering that goes into building to the highest earthquake standards. Learn more about the building here

Latest Information

Opening date
Due to the recent wet weather the development of our outdoor area has been delayed. This has meant that our pre-opening assessments cannot take place until August. As a result we need to delay our opening to a tentative date of Monday 8th September. 

We are sorry that we're not able to give a more definite date due to factors out of our control. We think this Kindergarten will be well worth the wait!
