A tool to help parents find childcare options in Christchurch & Canterbury.

Parent Portal is an honest, reliable tool to help parents find quality childcare in Christchurch & Canterbury, New Zealand.

We are all about making the search for childcare simple! 

Using our search tool, a parent can find out specific details about childcare options in their area. Our search page categories allow parents to browse childcare options by type, location, child's age and hours needed.

No more scrolling through multiple websites... no more information overload! 

See an example of a childcare service here:

Once you have selected the childcare categories on our search page, our tool will list every type of childcare available to you according to your criteria; preschools, early learning centers, home based care options, playgroups and playcenters.

We are here to help parents find childcare options that suit the needs of their child and their family.

Begin your quest here:

Once you have done your online search and you know what is available to you, you can contact your favourites to organise visits. You will then get to meet the educators, see how they interact with the children, and get a feel for the place. Do multiple visits before you make up your mind.

Trust your gut, you are the expert on your child.
