Wellington Childcare With A Difference

Here at Pride Lands, we have a simple, clear vision:
“To help guide children through to adulthood, to help as many children as possible, and to provide this assistance anywhere it is needed, and to any age.” To realise this vision we offer a range of before and after school care and school holiday programs designed to nurture and provide support to children and their families.

Children Reading

As a parent, once you understand our vision you’ll see why our childcare services are different from other providers, and how those differences are all designed to teach confidence and respect and to help your children grow into great adults.

Ask kids why they love coming to Pride Lands, and while they might mention the great food, or the way we treat them with respect, or the fantastic field trips, the number one response will be how much fun they have with us.

After School Care

The Pride Lands Childcare Difference

No matter when or why your children come to us, for before school care, after school care or school holiday programmes, or the age of your children, there are some things we think are important, that form the basis of everything we do.

• No TV or video games
• Cooking and eating healthy, balanced meals
• Offering structured, varied and fun activities – no game or activity repeated in a year
• Teaching behaviour management and conflict resolution techniques
• Encouraging and motivating children to always strive for success.
• An emphasis on teamwork and confidence-building challenges
• Enhancing the passion, direction and decision making of children
• Promoting the development of self-care skills

Our before school care, after school care and school holiday programmes all qualify for Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) subsidies. To find out if you qualify for an OSCAR subsidy, and how to get it, visit the Work and Income website below.
