Hamilton Early Learning Centre

Out There. Around Here.


We are now at Level 1. Please see here for further details about a safe visit to our centre.

Our Hamilton preschool offers a super exciting place to learn

Kia ora, and welcome to YMCA Hamilton Early Learning Centre, where the most important thing is having fun!

Our childcare centre in Hamilton provides a safe, caring environment that is all about children having a go, from creating a play dough sculpture, to building the biggest ever block tower. We have heaps of activities for children to take part in, and our fully licensed teachers ensure kids are always learning lots, and having a fantastic time.

We love our multicultural environment, which sees us frequently speaking in Te Reo and following Tikanga Maori, so your tamariki can learn the importance of using one of our other official languages. Whanau are also incredibly important to us, so the more you can be involved, the better.

No day at our childcare centre in Hamilton is the same, and we are certain your child will look forward to walking through our doors, excited for the fun that lays ahead.
