Aubrey ELC
Is a family owned boutique centre (est. 2008) catering for a maximum of 12-15 children in the Teina (infants and toddlers) cottage and 35-38 in the Tuakana (preschoolers) house. We are fortunate to have long term dedicated teachers who make every day at Aubrey a fun and learning experience. We have 5 acres to explore and friendly animals to feed. Our Tuakana children also have a large bike area and carpentry table (with real tools). The schools the children leave us for, have informed us that Aubrey children are confident, competent learners, who are very well prepared socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively for their school years.

Aubrey children all know each other, and it is a family friendly environment.

We currently have a number of children leaving for school soon and have limited places available next term-if you want your child to learn and grow in this unique environment please contact Linda or Victoria, 094211097 or 0272483746 you can learn more at
