Our fantastic new centre is ready!

As of Tuesday 21st April we are back home!

Please come and visit our new state of the art facilities at 96 Gayhurst Rd.

We are immensely proud of them and can't wait to share them with our wonderful ECCC whanau.


The Educational Child Care Centre was established in 1978 by a group of high school teachers who had a vision of quality childcare and education for their children.

So the hard work began in setting up a not for profit community based centre run by a committee and a dedicated teaching team. In 35 years the families and teachers have changed but the principles remain the same.

The Educational Child Care Centre is a non-profit making, Incorporated Society. The members of the society are the parents.

Qualified, registered, experienced teachers are employed to provide full time education and care for children 0–6 years of age. We believe that our teaching ratios should be higher quality than the Ministry of Education minimum standards.
