Welcome

Campus Creche was established in 1973 as a parent
co-operative and we have grown from a small centre to a large not for profit organisation with five centres that cater for children aged 3 months to 6 years.  Each of our centres specialise in working with a specific age group.

We are located at the University of Waikato on large park like grounds.   Our centres have a high number of qualified and experienced teachers with lower staff/child ratios than Ministry of Education regulations.

We run nature based programmes for children to regularly participate in.  This gives our children an opportunity to explore natural places and become competent confident learners in the natural world.  

Campus Creche has a family atmosphere where children are valued and respected, building strong foundations for life.

Campus Creche offers 20 ECE hours for children aged 3 to 6 years. Read more about our Philosophy.
