The Point Early Learning Centre Gisborne

At The Point, we believe that as a childcare centre in Gisborne, we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.

With a safe and nurturing childare environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.

Our Gisborne daycare centre caters for tamariki aged 0-6 year olds and we are open 7.45am-5.15pm, Monday – Friday. Conveniently located on Gladstone Road in Gisborne, our daycare centre is easy to find and within a short travelling distance to Gisborne township, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

Your child will love the well laid out learning corners at our childcare centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.  There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.

Our daycare teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.

Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development.  All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.  This special early learning centre environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.

“Our little girl started at the point at the beginning of 2020 as we moved back to Gisborne. All the kaiako have been amazing with her transition into a bigger care facility. We love how busy our daughter is every day and she is proud to call The Point her daycare.”
