Nettie Riley Kindergarten is located on Witako Street in central Lower Hutt and offers an all-day (7.30am to 5pm), 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 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 will remain open during the term breaks, with a two week closure period over Christmas / New Year and on public holidays.

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
