Education Minister Anne Tolley says a total of 143 Christchurch schools will have re-open by the end of this week - with almost all running by next week.
It will see 88 per cent of schools open by the end of the week.
It is expected that 234 early childhood education services, or 69 per cent, will be open.
"A small number of schools still have issues such as building repairs and infrastructure to fix, and most of these should be open the following week, Tolley said.
Pupils whose schools are closed can attend nine 'learning hubs' in school halls managed by experienced principals and teachers.
"Year 1-8 students can attend, during normal school hours, and parents can also pick up learning resources for use at home,'' Tolley said.
The following school halls will be used:
- Sockburn Primary School
- Addington Primary School
- Somerfield School
- Waltham Primary School
- Paparoa School
- Windsor School
- St Albans Primary School
- Mairehau Primary School
- Cashmere Primary School
