It’s the flexibility in bookings that sets Educare apart from other childcare providers. We are open Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. Contact us on 07 958 5864 for availability of space.

Handily located within the Waterworld facility, Educare provides care for children aged between 16 weeks and school age on either a regular/permanent basis, or we can meet the needs of parents who require casual care for their pre-schoolers.

Waterworld Educare is a licensed childcare and education provider with a capacity for up to 30 children at any one time, allowing 10 of these spaces to cater for under two year olds.

Educare’s services are not restricted to Waterworld customers – we meet the childcare needs of any parent who has other commitments or just needs time to themselves.

Waterworld Educare is well-resourced, and provides a diverse learning environment following the New Zealand Early Childhood Education curriculum (Te Whāriki). Our focus is on providing a safe, friendly and caring learning environment for all the children in our centre.
