We aim to provide high quality preschool education and care for tamariki and their whanau in a safe and loving environment. Everything we do in our environment and curriculum is thoughtfully designed to create learning opportunities for children. 

We are old school in all the good ways;

  • We have a good blend of free play and also teacher managed times during the day.

  • We have mat times that support children to participate and listen attentively.

  • Children are intentionally supported to develop literacy and numeracy skills that lay the foundations for success at school. 

  • Our teachers take amazing care of our equipment and environment.
