Hardykids Early Learning Centre

Teaching Kids to Grow


Welcome to Hardykids Early Learning Centre - Nelson!

We are an early childcare centre, providing excellent care & education for children in the heart of Nelson at 400 Hardy Street East. Our purpose built centre caters for children from three months to six years.

We are open from 7.30am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays.

We are also proud to have Hardykids Blossom House Nursery, a specialised infant and toddler centre, right next door. Blossom House Nursery is a beautifully renovated villa, a real ‘home away from home’ for your infant or toddler, with lush gardens, spacious and peaceful play rooms and even a fire place to keep warm on those colder days.

We encourage you to take a look around and feel welcome to contact us if you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you!


Our in-house chef provides healthy and nutritious home cooked meals that include all the food groups necessary for a healthy diet.

Hours & Rates

We offer competitive rates, flexible hours and government funded free hours to keep childcare costs affordable for our families.​

Natural Play Areas

Our huge natural grass playgrounds provide plenty of space for all our children of all ages to explore nature in a safe environment.​
