Large open spaces

Central Hastings Early Learning Centre is a brand new preschool centrally located in the Hastings CBD. It’s built on the former Hastings Bowling Club grounds which has allowed us to create truly unique spaces, both inside and out.

By using our natural environment to our advantage, it enables a sense of belonging and grows respect for everything and everybody within the culture of our centre.

Warm, loving & safe

Our mission at Central Hastings Early Learning Centre is to create magical learning experiences for children and their whānau.

We do this by combining the talents of our amazing teachers with our warm, loving, and safe learning environment that compliments the home and reflects our unique natural surroundings.

We aim to build confidence in our tamariki, our whānau, our team and our community.

Lots to see and do!

At Central Hastings Early Learning Centre we provide high quality childcare and education. We stimulate the mental, physical and emotional growth of children by providing a wide variety of experiences.

We endeavour to incorporate new developments in early childhood education into our programmes. This enables our teachers to be at the forefront of children’s learning.

Each child has ownership of their own profile displayed in the child’s room, available for parents to view and contribute to.  We like to encourage family involvement to ensure we have a collaborative approach with the whānau.

Brand new

Opened in 2017, our tamariki benefit from modern facilities and brand new resources, lovingly maintained to the highest standard.

Centrally located

Our centre is built on the former grounds of the Hastings Bowling Club, conveniently located near the CBD at 511 Hastings Street South.

Truly unique

We aim to use our unique natural surroundings to create a special place for tamariki to explore, learn and grow with lots to see and do.
