Child at Lil Owls Preschool

Located on the corner of Woodham Road and Pages Road, Little Owls is centally located for families in Avonside as well as Wainoni, Linwood, Bexley, Dallington and Phillipstown.

We use Te Whāriki in our centre and ensure children are engaged in learning. Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced and take pride in providing a warm and caring environment for our tamariki and whanau.

Our nursery caters for children birth to two years of age and accommodates up to 17 children per day. The nursery is a calming environment with a separate sleep room and outdoor area. Children are able to explore and play throughout the day at their own pace.

Our preschool caters for children two to five years of age, with up to 38 children onsite each day. The preschool offers a range of experiences during the day, based on the children’s interests.

St John of God Hauora Trust's Child Protection Policy helps ensure the safety and protection of children and provide guidelines for our caregivers to ensure correct and effective processes are in place when there are concerns for the safety or wellbeing of children.


We offer competitive fees and do not charge on public holidays.
