We believe in the importance of loving and caring relationships. We will support children to develop a lifelong love for learning, full of fun and potential in partnership with their whānau.


Our values:
Aroha (love)
Manaakitanga (respect)
Whanaugatanga (relationships)
Ako (learning from one another)



We offer care and education for 0 - 5 year olds. This is divided into a nursery for children aged 0-2 years and a preschool for children aged 2-5 years with separate indoor and outdoor areas.

We are open Monday to Friday from 7:30am - 6:00pm.
We provide specialised experiences and play equipment suited for each age group and ability. York Place Preschool & Nursery enables your child to flourish and grow.

We have been locally owned since late 2014 by Sarah and Jonathon Pleace. We are very proud of our centre and pride ourselves on continually improving. Sarah oversees the running of the centre and prioritises ongoing professional development and growth of our teaching team as well as efficient administration processes. Jonathon takes care of all the centre improvements, such as playground construction, alterations, painting and maintenance. We have three young children, all of whom attended the centre.

We are pleased to be using Educa to link centre and home with online learning profiles, and Discover Childcare software for our Student Management System
