Welcome to

Lansdowne private childcare

Lansdowne Private Childcare and Pre-School Centre is privately owned and has been caring for children in Masterton since 1993. We are dedicated to providing high quality care & education in a safe and relaxed environment that we hope will be familiar and comfortable for your child.

Educational Programme

Lansdowne Private Childcare and Pre-School has an educational programme which is planned for both group and individual children with a combination of structured activities and free play and is always flexible. It includes stories, music, puzzles, dough, blocks, painting, water, collage, dramatic play, fitness activities, sand play, cooking, self-help skills and many other activities based on current interests, which may include visits outside the centre as well as special interest visits. Our programme is designed so that children grow, develop and learn at their own pace.

We are committed to running our early Childcare Centre in a relaxed manner, promoting a nurturing environment which provides quality care and education where children feel safe, happy and secure, as they would do in their own homes. The children are exposed to a wide range of stimulating age appropriate activities and warm and caring staff.


In preparation for school we offer 4 year old children (depending on the individual) an extension of our programme. The structured activities include, recognising their own name, recognising letters of the alphabet and numbers, colours and shapes, correct use of a pencil and scissors, task sheets, self help skills and development of concentration for longer periods.

Pre-School is open from 7.30am – 5.30pm




Nursery & Toddler Centre

Separate Nursery and play areas for babies and toddlers, provide undisturbed rest and a safe play area.

We operate to a basic, flexible routine and encourage parents and family to drop in at any time. We feel communication and consultation with families is very important to the well being of each child.

Parents are kept informed of the activities their child has done verbally daily from staff. Staff members employed at Lansdowne Private Childcare and Pre-School are selected for their personal qualities of warmth and love of children. Staff hold a range of early childhood qualifications or other relevant fields of training, i.e. Diploma or Degree of Teaching in Early Childhood, Certificate in Early Childhood Care and Education.

Nursery is open from 7.30am – 5.30pm
