About us

your kids home away from home

“Hello! We are Megan and Kirsty, business partners and now owners of Nurture and Bloom early learning centre. We are both kiwi girls, born and raised in New Zealand. We are qualified teachers who have worked in the ECE sector for over 33 years combined, teaching and managing Childcare Centres. 

After working together for 10 years, we started our own business mentoring teachers and then decided it was the right time for us to start looking for a Childcare Centre of our own, a dream we had both shared for some time. When the opportunity came along to own Life Childcare, a well established, Christian Centre- we knew it was the Centre for us.

We wanted to own a Centre that provided the highest standards of quality care and education. Where families would feel welcomed and at home as soon as they stepped inside and where children are given the best possible start in life. We are so proud of this special place, there is something different about it and we know you will feel it when you visit too.”

When Megan and Kirsty aren’t at Nurture and Bloom, you will find Megan spending time with family on their lifestyle block, helping her husband Tim with his newest renovation project, brunching, catching up on much needed rest, going for walks, or attending church.

Kirsty is usually found chasing after her busy toddler, singing in the music team at church with her husband who plays bass, exploring local beaches or enjoying a glass of wine and a good book.



We would love to hear from you, why don't you come and see us!
