Clermont Terrace provides care and education for children from birth to school-aged, in an inclusive community atmosphere where children of all ages can interact.

Located close to Wellington’s CBD, we welcome the children of University staff and students, and from the community.

Our environment

Clermont Terrace Centre is located on a sunny section with spacious rooms. There’s plenty of space for tamariki (children) to play in the two leafy gardens, with play equipment for different levels of learning and exploration.

Our rooms

Tamariki spend most of their time with us in their age groups, with activities and schedules to meet their specific requirements.

Piwakawaka: birth–18 months

Tui: 18 months–3 years

Kea: 3–5 years


At Clermont Terrace, all food is provided. Dietary requirements are catered for, so you can be sure of your child’s wellbeing.


Parents are required to provide nappies.

Keeping in touch

We use StoryPark to share photos of your child at play and update you on their learning, and emails and noticeboards to share what’s coming up at the centre—like events and outings, and how we’re celebrating cultural days of significance.

Session times

Our Clermont Terrace Centre is open Monday to Friday from 7.30 am to 5.15 pm and offers a range of session options, including mornings or afternoons only, full days, or a mix. We have a minimum booking of two full days or four sessions per week.

We’re open throughout the year, closing only for public and University holidays, three teacher-only days and a two week break over Christmas.

We require tamariki to have a few settling-in visits before their start date to ensure they’re comfortable with the centre and staff.

Fees and subsidies

We offer a range of fees and session times so that you can choose what’s best for you and your whānau.
