University Kids Wellington is a home-away-from-home for tamariki (children) where they can play, learn, and make friends in a safe and stimulating environment.

Caring for tamariki from birth to school-aged, we welcome enrolments from staff, students, and the public. We have flexible options to suit all situations, so get in touch to find out if University Kids Wellington is right for your whānau (family).
