Paremata Plunket Creche

We are located in central Whitby with a beautiful outlook over the Whitby lake. We are a great first step into Early Childhood Education as we foster the development of children's social skills through friendly and fun relationships.

We provide children and their families with a safe and well resourced learning environment that they can explore. We encourage children to learn at their own pace, both individually and with others. They are also given the opportunity to choose the direction of their learning, enabling them to grow into competent and confident learners.

The crèche has been an important part of the Whitby community for over 25 years - and we are still going strong. Our building was refurbished in 2015 to allow us to increase our license to 25 children per session. This refurbishment is part of us adapting to our growing community - however we still strongly believe in maintaining a great teacher to child ratio to create a rich learning environment.

Some of our key focuses are:

  • Providing opportunities for children to interact with others their own age
  • Helping children learn to share and work with others
  • Letting children be children and get messy!
  • Engaging children in the wide range of activities we offer
  • Physically, mentally and socially stimulating children

We have friendly and well-trained staff that are passionate about early childhood education and supporting families in our local community. We are the perfect place for young children to learn how to learn and get involved in a range of exciting daily activities. We would love to hear from you and have you and your family become a part of our wonderful crèche!
