ABC Marchwiel

ABC Marchwiel early learning centre is located between Marchwiel and Waimataitai and has a great team of experienced teachers, dedicated to providing quality care and education for children.

We are a family and community-focused centre. Our staff are passionate about the education, care and holistic development of all children. We pride ourselves on encouraging children to experience new challenges and opportunities, allowing them the freedom to explore, build independence, self-confidence and their self-esteem.

We provide a warm, nurturing and stimulating educational environment with a home-like atmosphere. Our location and great teacher to child ratios enable regular excursions outside of the centre, to the local park, green grocer, elderly rest home and we are within walking distant to local schools and north town shopping centre.

At ABC Marchwiel we are committed to providing the highest standard of care and education for your child during their nursery and preschool years. We value the opportunity to contribute to this important period of your child’s life and work in collaboration with you.

We provide opportunities and learning experiences for children to be active participants in their learning journey. We are fortunate to have a well-equipped gym area that allows the children to develop their gross motor skills and have space to explore on days when the weather prevents us from going outside.

We incorporate BestStart's Be School Ready initiative throughout our daily schedule which enables children to prepare for school and develop a passion for life-long learning.

kind words from our parents


A big thank you to the teachers of ABC Marchwiel for the care and education of our two children. They have settled in really well, as the teachers have supported Olivia and Owen in discovering their new environment and providing great learning activities. We are really happy we chose ABC Marchwiel – Well recommended.


It’s amazing to see my beautiful daughter enjoying herself every time she goes to ABC Marchwiel. Thank you for caring for and looking after her. And as a DAD me and my partner are so proud about what she’s doing every day.


My daughter’s doing so well at kindy. I can tell she’s learning so much, as the things she is doing at home she’s talking a lot more soon we will be able to have a conversation with her. Very happy with her progress also happy I decided I was time for day care. Thank you for taking the time to help my little precious to grow.
