Morning & Afternoon Sessions, School Day Sessions and Term Dates

Session Times

Kindergarten hours have been modified to reflect the changing needs of their communities.

They are open Monday - Friday, 8.30am - 2.30pm every day.  (Arakura and Taita Kindergartens are the exceptions, opening from 8.45am - 2.45pm).


We do not zone our kindergartens so you are welcome to check out a few of them and find the one that suits you best.



Term Dates

Sessions at all Hutt City Kindergartens are offered in term blocks, with holidays closely matching those of primary schools.


Holiday Kindergarten is open to all HCK families.  Locations are advertised on the website and at kindergartens.
