Why Choose The Cat's Pyjamas?
The early years of a child’s learning make a significant difference to the way they develop and go on to learn throughout their lives. Getting it right at this vital stage will build the lifelong foundations of success.
Privately owned and operated, The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery is committed to providing quality care and early childhood education. Our commitment to quality is reinforced by excellent ratios, qualified, experienced and caring teachers and a well-resourced core curriculum that considers and challenges all aspects of a child’s learning and development.
We offer a safe, warm and nurturing environment for your child. Our purpose-built facilities are bright, open and spacious, with plenty of exciting equipment and a wealth of resources to keep busy pre-schoolers engrossed. We are open 50 weeks of the year, Monday to Friday 7.30am to 6.00pm.
Our stimulating educational programmes are based on the principles of Te Whāriki - the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum. At The Cat’s Pyjamas we believe that when children are ‘learning to learn‘ they are gathering the skills, knowledge and dispositions to be able to cope with the diverse challenges of life, including the challenge of starting school. Our teachers create a learning environment that is rich in materials and interactions-with opportunities for children to practice choosing, thinking, negotiating, problem solving and taking risks.
The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery is pleased to be offering parents up to 20 Hours ECE per week for all 3, 4 and 5 year old children.
Top Cats Before & After School Care operates from our West Melton centre, providing quality before and after school care for children attending West Melton School.

“Inspiring, enriching, caring, comforting, encouraging, professional, inviting, building imaginations. These are just a few words that immediately spring to mind when I reflect upon our experience with The Cat’s Pyjamas West Melton. Our daughter settled in from day one and was so happy every day to go to “school” with lots of excitement at the end of the day as she shared daily adventures and experiences. Our daughter is very social, however, massive credit must go to the wonderful team at The Cat’s PJs for her settling in so well. We have been incredibly impressed with the centre as a whole and on every level. All the staff that we met were wonderful, knowledgeable and professional. This has made our transition back to NZ so much easier knowing our girl is happy and incredibly well cared for. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at The Cat’s PJs West Melton for enriching Caitlyn’s life " Kimberley and Gavin
