At High Five, We Celebrate Childhood

"Genuine, warm relationships are a core value at High Five."

We love to celebrate the natural inquisitiveness, curiosity and imagination of children. We believe that the pace of the child's development is to be respected and that they should feel empowered and guided positively along that learning journey.

 By working alongside children, we encourage both independent and group learning through the following of their own interests, helping them to gather knowledge and social and emotional skills along the way. Our kaiako empower tamariki to become lifelong learners who are confident to take calculated risks and build trusting relationships.


We continuously strive to be the most passionate early childhood education centre in Wellington by offering...

  • Superb teacher to child ratios for all age groups

  • A natural and vast outdoor environment for play for akonga (learners)

  • A one-on-one settling process to ensure children feel comfortable with their new caregivers and their new environment

  • A culturally diverse and dedicated, long serving team of kaiako (teachers)

  • Healthy prepared meals by our on site chef, with the ability to cater to many dietary preferences

  • A unique online learning story portfolio that celebrates children's un rushed journey through learning

  • Enhanced preparation for school with teacher accompanied school visits and the ongoing development of a "school readiness" programme

  • So much love, laughter and enjoyment for children and their whānau
