Grow, Play, Learn with Elm Tree Early Learning Centre

Early Learning Centre

Our Centre

     Elm Tree Early Learning Centre offers a safe, well resourced, family focused day-care in central  Tauranga.

We are situated at 16 Mission Street, just along from the historic Elms Mission Station and Gardens.

Our beautiful, purpose built building caters for a mixed age group of children from 3 months to five years.

We are proud of the eco-friendly practices within our Centre.

We use solar power for heat & light, we recycle or re-use all packaging and paper, use child-safe cleaning products and compost food scraps for our worm farm.

Our children learn how to care for our environment and take these good practices back to their homes and families.

We strive to be the Bay’s education provider of choice by providing a stimulating learning environment, by respecting others & their beliefs and by embracing family & community.
