About The Nurtury

Children are precious gifts entrusted to us by parents.

We are dedicated in developing children holistically with our team of registered teachers in our unique environment.

The Nurtury is an early-education centre with a farmyard setting in Halswell, Christchurch, New Zealand. We love to encourage our children to have fun under the sun as it can enhance the child’s development whilst getting in touch with nature and interacting with animals.

Guided by a team of qualified and professional early-childhood teachers, every energetic child will be having a great time at the farmyard interacting with our lovely farm animals and also at the centre’s gymnasium area with different equipment for various activities.

We serve warm and nourishing food direct from our certified kitchen to ensure that every child leaves our dining table with satisfaction and energy.

Actively involved with the parents and the community, we are a friendly team that would love to welcome your child and you into our ever-nurturing family!
