Bright Star Education & Childcare Centre is a private full-time childcare centre. We are located at 1 Batchelor Street, Newlands, Wellington, near the community centre.
Our operating hours are from 7:30am to 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. Bright Star caters for children from 6 months to 5 years old, and has places for up to 40 children – 10 places in the under 2’s group and 30 over 2’s. The government’s “20 hours free” scheme will be applied to children over 3 years of age.
We value qualified early childhood professionals, a high staff-child ratio, and an engaging programme as priorities to high quality education and care. Our family-like Centre environment provides a warm, loving and supportive learning place for children to work together.
Our tailored menu aims to meet the National Heart Foundation and 5+ Vege/Fruit per day guidelines in order to promote the healthy growth and nutrition of our children.
