About Us


Established in 1987, First Years Richmond is governed by a Board of Trustees and Management Team. As a not-for-profit organisation, all our funds are invested back into the centre, providing the best possible care and facilities for our tamariki/children and whānau/families.

Open from 7.45am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.


Only closed for two to three weeks during the Christmas period and public holidays.

We do not charge for days we are closed.
