Highbury House Classes

Highbury Community House and Early Learning Centre

Supporting Our Local Community Since 1979

Highbury Community House has been providing a wide range of services to the local community since 1979. We offer room hire, classes, workshops, events, and a very popular Early Learning Centre.

We could not operate without the support of Auckland Council, Kaipatiki Local Board, and our many sponsors around the community including the Birkenhead Licensing Trust. Highbury House is run by core staff members and a Governance Committee.

Our History

The history of Highbury House

Supporting Our Local Community Since 1979

Our vision is to create a vibrant community fostering well-being. He hapori ngangakau i to hauora. We wish to not only be a community but a family.

Originally run out of the All Saints Vicarage in Hinemoa Street, Highbury House was established under the Birkenhead Community Project in 1979.

Its goal was to provide a venue for community activities and a crèche to enable mothers to join in activities or have time for themselves.

Housed since 1990 in its 110 Hinemoa Street premises, little has changed in terms of its purpose today.

Highbury House is a vibrant hive of activity with the sounds of both young and old members of the community in the house each day – families and their children coming and going from the Early Learning Centre; many arts, craft, and self-help classes running through the week; the rooms being hired for various business and community activities during the week and the weekend.
