About Us

Our two purpose-built early childhood education and childcare centres are located in Raumati on the Kapiti Coast and Levin. We are licensed to provide childcare for children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years. After school care and holiday programmes are available at our Kapiti centre only.

At Chelsea House we have created an environment that is nurturing and creative. It is a place for wonder and delight, a place for stimulation and exchange of ideas. Indoor and outdoor areas are integrated and the physical space is arranged so that children can make choices independently. They can play with others, be involved in messy or noisy activities or simply settle into a quiet space for themselves.

Chelsea House follows the New Zealand early childhood education curriculum, Te Whaariki. All children experience stimulating, exciting and age-appropriate activities that extend their abilities and provide challenge and achievement. You can find out more about our early childhood education programme on the individual centre pages for Raumati and Levin.

Both centres are open 52 weeks of the year but are closed on statutory holidays. Normal hours are Monday – Friday from 7.00am to 6.00pm.

Healthy children’s meals are part of our service, freeing up your time to focus on other commitments. Each centre has their own cook, who serves up delicious fare just like mum!


Our Mission Statement

The staff and management of Chelsea House Early Childhood Centre value respectful practice towards the children in our care, their parents, our employees and the community.

We aim each day to provide our children with developmentally appropriate education in a nurturing environment to support their development as competent, confident learners and communicators, secure in their sense of belonging, and in the knowledge that they make a valuable contribution to their community.
