The team at Maranatha Gunyah in Wellington will spend the next two weeks preparing the centre for its first enrollments.
The center has received over 40 applications for placement following inquiries from interested families.
Maranatha Gunyah childcare director Dixie Robinson said they had hired three educators from 20 applications, and they have been busy planning to open the long daycare centre.
The childcare facility, built adjacent to Maranatha House aged care, offers placement for 0-5 year olds along with after school care, and the possibility of overnight accommodation.
The centre is divided into spaces for different age groups including babies, toddlers and preschoolers along with a yarning space where older residents can spend time with the youngsters. The centre has already appointed a cook, who has many years of experience in childcare and will prepare delicious, nutritious meals for the children to enjoy.
The centre will open on October 12.
