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, and there are up to 30 spaces at each venue. We open enrolments at the beginning of each term and we encourage early registration to secure a space for your child.

PLEASE NOTE - The October Holiday Kindergarten Programme will be running at two locations only - Epuni and Waiwhetu Kindergartens
