Welcome to Curious Cubs Child Care and Early Learning Centre. We are a child care centre located in the heart of Hillcrest, Hamilton the small exclusivity of our child care centre with excellent adult to child ratios and family values ensures quality care and education. Curious Cubs Early Learning Centre creates a stimulating environment that provokes children to investigate, nuturing their natural curiousity and encouraging them to learn at their own level and pace. We want to help grow your Curious Cub into a child who feels valued and loves to learn. Our teachers are all qualified Early childhood teachers with many years experience. Our low roll size and only having two areas – Under 2’s and Over 2’s ensures a lovely family feel to the centre. We pride ourselves on knowing every family well and we have several siblings in the centre who enjoy learning and growing together. We currently use Educa an online portfolio system which provides parents with a secure login. Parents (and who ever has been invited to share a child’s portfolio) receive emails whenever we post a new learning story, photo, video or daily dairy update. Imagine grandparents or aunties in another country being kept up to date with your child’s development – simply magical. Our parents and families often comment back to us which creates and strengthens our ties between the centre and home. Several of our families have also written and posted photos to share their experiences on Educa which we enjoy immensely. Come and see us today!

Testimonials from Whanau at Curious Cubs Hillcrest
“My boy has been at Cubs since he was 6months old and we very much view them as a part of our family. Not only have they cared for him as if he were their own, but they have given him learning experiences that I would never even have thought of. He is now a strong and confident boy who embraces everything that comes his way. Thank you Curious Cubs!
Nga mihi nunui kia koutou.”
“Curious cubs has welcomed our child so well. We were originally concerned about the language barrier, but with the help of the teachers, our son quickly learnt how to communicate by gestures and by english. They listen to our values and what stage our child is at in development. They readily take in consideration each child’s needs. They also take great care and detail of each child’s potential. Thank You Curious Cubs team.”
“Very welcoming centre with great staff. I felt comfortable from the moment I first spoke with a staff member. Children just love their days there and are exposed to so many leaning opportunities.”
“The staff make you and your child feel so welcome, you can leave knowing they will be safe, cared for and also encouraged to learn and be themselves.”
“Curious Cubs isn’t just a daycare facility it is a family. Jenni and her team care unconditionally for each and every child. Each child is a little person not a number. My 3 year old has been there for over two years now and my 5 month old little boy is due to start and I love knowing they are in such capable hands.”
