At Cashmere Early Learning Centre we believe in providing children and their families exceptionally high standard of education and care which we are able to provide through our low group numbers and ratio of qualified teachers. In our centre we are licensed for 28 children aged 2-5 years.

Our kaiako are all qualified or in their final year of training and have their first aid certificates and participate in ongoing learning and development. We believe in providing a programme that is inclusive and meets children's individual needs. The tamariki who attend our centre have opportunities to explore our local community through outings and invited guests. Our preschool is small and homely providing tamariki with spaces to play together or by themselves if they wish. Through having a small group of children this ensures that the needs of your child are meet through our programme and planning which grows and extends their interests and is based on our philosophy of how children learn through play.  

We offer our families 20 hours ECE for all children over three and there is aslo a Work and Income subsidy available. We provide fruit and vegetables for morning and afternoon tea.
