As the owners of The Cat's Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery, we would like to welcome you to our centres.
The Cat's Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery Rolleston opened its doors in 2009 and the West Melton centre followed in 2012. With backgrounds in early childhood education and project management, and four young children, we could not find a Centre in our community that we believed offered what we wanted for our children - a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment, spacious indoor and outdoor play spaces, quality ratios with age-appropriate group sizes, and qualified, caring and passionate teachers.
We believe that The Cat's Pyjamas is a special place for children where they are safe, nurtured and happy. We are committed to providing quality care and early childhood education. Our modern, purpose built facilities have been designed to meet the specific learning and developmental needs of infants, toddlers and young children. We take pride in our excellent ratios, our qualified, experienced and caring teachers, our stimulating learning spaces and our well-resourced, rich core curriculum.

Our "Very Well Placed" 4 year Education Review Office report places us in the top 10% of all early childhood services in New Zealand. Our fantastic teachers are dedicated to providing a uniquely rich environment in which to foster your child's health, physical, social, intellectual and emotional development. We truly care about our team. We believe in a culture of gratitude and appreciation, and in valuing and celebrating teachers as well as children for their individual differences. We would love you to visit our centre and get a feel for what we do, but in the meantime, please read more about what makes The Cat's Pyjamas the best start to a lifetime of learning for your child.
