Since 2004, Gumdrops Early Learning Centre has embraced Christchurch families from a diverse range of backgrounds. We believe that children learn best within a warm, family atmosphere, so that’s what we offer.

Mixed Age

In our early learning centre, siblings and cousins can play together, just as they would at home! This helps with settling and any separation anxiety your child may experience – and it’s a lot more fun.

Free-play, messy play — we do the clean up!

What could be more fun than getting messy! We embrace your child’s natural sense of fun, encouraging them to explore and learn through messy play.
