Sue and Mike McLean established Dunsandel Childcare and Preschool Limited after the need for a rural care and education service became evident. Locating an ideal property in the heart of Dunsandel in 2001, Sue and Mike set out to convert this property to a childcare Centre. Dunsandel Childcare and Preschool opened its doors to the community in January 2002 and has been providing quality care and education services ever since.

Dunsandel Childcare and Preschool celebrated 15 years of service in 2017. The Centre strive’s to provide a quality service for the local communities and the wider rural communities within the Selwyn district.
