About Ara Institute of Canterbury

Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology's Early Learning Centre is a modern and purpose built facility for children aged from six months to five years.

When you enroll your child with us you can be assured that they will receive quality care and education in a supportive, creative learning environment.

If you are interested in enrolling your child please come and see us. We're happy to discuss your needs and show you around.

You can also visit us online for hours, fees and general information.

What makes us different?

We strive to maintain ratios of 1:3 in the Nursery (children aged under two) and 1:7 in the Preschool (children aged two years and over). Most of our teachers have recognised Early Childhood qualifications.
