NESTS NZ Ltd offer Nurturing Environmentally-Sustainable Teaching Services (NESTS) to support the Owner Operated Early Learning Centres. 

At NESTS we have a familywhanau ethos embracing the concept of tuakana teina where children of all ages play and learn together and interact with one another in their home away from home.  

Our goal is for every child/tamariki to spend their day in an environment where self-esteem, love, learning and respect for others are prominent and to leave each day feeling secure and loved in their special environment.   

NESTS Early Learning Centres offer a homelike setting with a garden where children are able to enjoy nature and learn to respect their environment.  

We believe in developing respectful, responsive and trusting relationships with all members of the learning community that all teachers parents and whanau should feel welcome and develop a strong sense of belonging within our centre that chilldren learn through play children need to have their individual needs met to be able to grow learn and develop.

Springs Community Early Learning Centre

Welcome to Springs Community Early Learning Centre. Our community based not for profit preschool is based in Sockburn, Christchurch . Our team is passionate about providing an environment where your child is nurtured supported and encouraged to learn.  

We are a registered charitable trust and a not- for-profit Early Learning Centre. The centre is managed by a community based Governance Board made up of parents and other community minded members in Christchurch. We aim to keep fees as accessible and affordable as possible and actively support families to be engaged in early childhood education. We maintain our commitment to fully qualified early childhood teachers that maintain a high-quality learning environment with a high standard of care and education.


The philosophy at Springs is grounded in creating a connected, positive, supportive environment. We apply Te Whaariki – The Early Childhood Education Curriculum and are influenced by current research and theory to ensure excellent teaching and the best outcomes for children. We are committed to responding to the diversity of our community and therefore ensure responsive cultural values are a feature of our practice. Bring your child in and see what this looks like in day-to-day centre life.

At Springs Community Early Learning Centre children are placed in the heart of the learning environment as this is their Turangawaewae (meaning “a sense of identity and independence associated with having a particular home base”). It signifies that this is a place with a strong foundation where children will feel especially empowered and connected so they can learn and grow. Children are viewed as capable and competent who are supported in their cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being, secure with their sense of belonging. As Kaiako (teachers) we believe the purpose of high-quality education is to promote a love for life-long learning.
