Explore our

nursery facilities

Adjacent to the preschool in its own building, our nursery provides a nurturing, stimulating environment where pēpē and ākonga can explore, investigate and learn at their own pace.

Our nursery boasts a dedicated outdoor space as well as indoor facilities, carefully designed to cater to the unique needs of our youngest ākonga.



In our nursery area, we have procedures in place for ensuring that group and individual routines can happen for all pēpē and ākonga. Your key kaiako will follow the natural rhythms and routine you have at home for your pēpē including bottle feeding, nappy changing, and supporting them at sleep times. While the younger ākonga will generally follow our daily routine which has been created with their needs as the top priority.  

Ākonga and pēpē are guided through the day in a calm unhurried manner following adaptable routines depending on their needs and abilities. We include small and big group experiences for all ākonga to become involved in such as whānau time (daily welcome and stories), music experiences, and so much more. 



James Street nursery provides an engaging and caring environment for pēpē and ākonga up to 2½. We promote a sense of familiarity and belonging in our nursery that allows our youngest learners to thrive.

Within our nursery, ākonga are exposed to a range of age-appropriate resources and experiences including sensory play, interactive music sessions and outdoor exploration.
