Opening Hours

8.30am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday during school terms

We offer a mixture of morning, afternoon and all day sessions.  Children often start by attending mornings or afternoons at around 2 and 3/4 years of age, then transition to all day sessions. However, we recognise that families have different needs for childcare and will do our best to accomodate your family.


On a Friday morning we run the Eden Explorers playgroup which visits the kindergarten to play and explore our fantastic centre and natural environments.

For more information please call, email or drop in and visit our friendly team.

Fees and Free ECE

Hourly Fees
All 3 and 4 year olds are able to receive up to 20 hours of free early childhood education a week, up to a maximum of 6 hours per day. Whanau and caregivers must complete a form to be eligible (available from our reception).

If your child is younger than 3 years of age, you may qualify for a Childcare subsidy once your child is attending Eden for more than 3 hours per week.  We can help you with application forms and information.

If you do not qualify for or do not wish to utilise these subsidies, our hourly session fee is $5.00 (includes GST).  Fees may be reduced or waived in special circumstances to enable a child to attend Eden. Please contact us if you require further information about this.

Other Fees
A non-refundable fee of $20 is payable when enrolling a child.
A $10 termly administration fee is payable for each child attending kindergarten sessions.
From time to time we may take children on trips or organise outside visitors to teach children skills (e.g. dancing, ball skills). This may incur a small charge.
