About our kindergarten

Nettie Riley is 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.
