Cherry’s on Maryhill Ave is set on a large corner section in a modern building with shaded play-gardens, close to Hoon Hay and Our Lady of Assumption Primary Schools. When establishing the Centre we were very mindful of our impact on the environment and recycled all building materials possible. In the play-gardens we used locally sourced macrocarpa and manuka, and sustainably harvested purple-heart was used for the decking.

None to share just yet...

Cherry’s offers a high quality childcare and education service in a natural, caring, and safe environment. We provide a daily programme of free-play alternatives and planned activities, for example in maths, science, language, music, movement, art and craft. Our curriculum basis is Te Whariki and our focus is on children’s wellbeing, communication, belonging, contribution and exploration. We emphasise family involvement and a commitment to our multi-cultural heritage.


When establishing the Centre we were very mindful of our impact on the environment and recycled all building materials possible. New cladding was custom-made by Halswell Timber. In the play-gardens we used locally sourced macrocarpa and manuka, and sustainably harvested purple-heart was used for the decking. A telegraph pole recycled into a swing frame.

The natural foundations of the play-garden include recycled Halswell stone, teddington chip, schist pavers, limestone rocks and a wonderful Indian sandstone mosaic. Our gardens and barrels grow a mix of native plants, herbs, perennials, fruit trees, vegetables and…cherry trees. We have a shady garden with large silver birch, cedars, magnolia, and camellias.

Inside we used natural products. The carpet is wool, the existing rimu flooring was renovated, and wet areas have Artoleum flooring which is biodegradable. The children’s furniture is all birch ply and much of their resources are natural or recycled, including beautiful wood, pottery, glass, china, and metal artifacts for the family play areas. We have only eco-friendly cleaning products. Our pine cots have cotton sheets, pre-loved woolen blankets and cotton quilts. Children drink from small tea cups and use porcelain plates and bowls, and they learn to respect crockery as they would in a home.
