Chrysalis Early Learning Centre

About Chrysalis

At Chrysalis, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment that feels like a second home for you and your child. We take pride in being the most preferred and popular childcare center in town, as recognised by world-class businesses like Orion Healthcare, Methven, and Southern Spars. Our own invented, patented and award-winning Learning Roots & Shoots™ online visualisation system is just one of the ways we ensure your child receives the best possible start for school.

We understand that choosing a childcare centre is an important decision, which is why our teaching and leadership team have worked hard to earn a multi award-winning status, not to impress, but rather to impress upon our community that we always strive to “do the right thing as well as do things right”. With over a dozen nationally recognized awards and accolades since our inception in 2010, we are well known in the NZ ECE sector for:

  • our leading excellence in biophilic building designs that inspire teachers, parents and children,
  • spacious environments with around 150% larger spaces indoors and 300% larger spaces outdoors,
  • play-garden® designs,
  • teaching and leadership excellence,
  • world-first innovation in curriculum and educational philosophy, and
  • awarded sustainability practices.


We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, which is why we invest heavily in creating innovative features in our environment and teaching and learning programs. Our dedicated and highly qualified teachers ensure that your child receives our full focus and attention at daycare, with the best teacher-to-child ratios and a team of experienced educators from Avondale throughout the West and North West Auckland suburbs.

We want to make sure that you can see the results of our commitment to excellence every day. Our testimonials page (and over 65 reviews from the uneditable Google Reviews page and video testimonials from parents) features glowing reviews from parents, teachers, and the local West Auckland community, and we know that you will see our passion for providing the best possible care and education when you visit us.
