Hardykids Early Learning Centre

Teaching Kids to Grow


Welcome to Hardykids Early Learning Centre - Motueka!

We are an early childcare centre, providing excellent care & education for children in the heart of Motueka. Our homely centre caters for children from three months to six years, in a natural and nurturing environment. We are open from 7.30am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays. Hardykids is a real ‘home away from home’ for your little ones, with lush gardens, spacious and peaceful play rooms and even a fire place to keep warm on those colder days. We encourage you to take a look around and feel welcome to contact us if you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you!


Our in-house chef provides healthy and nutritious home cooked meals that include all the food groups necessary for a healthy diet.
