Welcome to

Nurture and Bloom

Nurture and Bloom is not just a childcare centre, but your child's home away from home 

A place for your child to learn and grow, where their day will be full with joy and laughter.

Throughout what we do, we outwork Christian values and believe in their importance for building the foundation of our children to flourish in life beyond the early years. 

Children learn best when they are loved and nurtured within a secure and stimulating environment that encourages discovery, curiosity, exploration, wonder, opportunity and creativity.

That is why we have designed our quality childcare education programmes in ways that will help your child grow to their full potential.

Our Te Rapa childcare centre is located in the heart of Te Rapa, Hamilton, just minutes from The Base Shopping Centre, the Rotokauri Transport Hub and Wintec.

Our Te Anau childcare centre is located minutes from the town centre, right beside the beautiful lake and surrounded by breathtaking mountain views, we love to explore our local community with our children.

Infants - Toddlers - Preschool (3 months - 6 years)

We provide ECE 20 hours Free Childcare (conditions apply).
