    Welcome to our preschools special area catering for your child from 3 months – 2 years.
    The preschool teaching staff are 100% fully trained to early childhood education standards. Our child to teacher ratio is 1:3 most of the time. The legal requirement is 1:5. Our philosophy is based on Primary Care giving.

    Your child will have the attention of a skilled teacher who works closely with you the parents to ensure your child feels secure, happy and involved in an individually planned early childhood education programme. Teachers are always available to confer with you. Twice yearly we provide personal parent interviews. Your child’s progress is recorded in attractive profile books that you can treasure forever.

    Within the early childhood education programme we provide music, te reo, art, storytelling, block building  and free play. Outdoors we have a challenging environment with grass, climbing equipment, water and sand play. Indoors we have individual cots and beds for your child’s rest and comfort. Do come and check us out.
