Clermont Terrace provides care and education for children from birth to five years. The centre provides an inclusive community atmosphere where children of all ages can interact and siblings of different ages can be together.

Traditionally Clermont Terrace has enrolled children of university staff only. Increasingly, families using this centre are students who are at the Kelburn and Pipitea Campus or caregivers working around the Lambton Quay/Thorndon area.

Children are cared for in three age-based programmes but are able to interact across the age range during parts of the day.

Clermont Terrace has recently been refurbished and is located on a flat, sunny and sheltered section with a large garden for the children to enjoy.

All food is provided and a weekly menu is displayed for families. Dietary requirements are catered for, so you can be sure of your child’s wellbeing. Parents are just required to provide bottles and nappies.

Our Clermont Terrace Centre is open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5.15pm and offers a range of session options. We have a minimum booking requirement of two full days or four sessions per week. We need children to have a number of settling in visits before their start date to enable them to become comfortable with the centre and to meet the staff. Please see our fees and sessions page for more information.
