Holiday Kindergarten

We provide a Holiday Kindergarten programme each term break with a team of qualified and experienced teachers.

Each term break we open three of our kindergartens – two in Central Hutt and one in Wainuiomata. The venues vary each term and all children enrolled with Hutt City Kindergarten are eligible to enrol even if the venue is not their regular kindergarten.

Holiday Kindergarten sessions are 8.30am to 2.30pm Monday to Thursday, and there are up to 30 spaces at the Central Hutt venues and 20 spaces at the Wainuiomata venue. We open enrolments at the beginning of each term and we encourage early registration to secure a space for your child.

The venues for the January Holiday Kindergarten (13 - 17 January 2020) will be Moera and Naenae Kindergartens. Please note we only have two venues in January.

Holiday Kindergarten offers:

  • A comfortable and familiar format.
  • Fun group learning through play.
  • A safe and stimulating environment.
  • 100% qualified teachers.


An affordable choice:
