Preschool

Our Preschool

Our Preschool learning programmes are designed to support children aged 3 – 5 years as they discover who they are, so that they can learn to express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas.

Our environment offers stimulating, challenging and accessible resources that are inviting and aesthetic to tamariki. This thoughtfully designed environment entices children to explore, discover, manipulate and learn. The resources and materials offered represent a wide curriculum – including literacy, numeracy, science, computer, technology, geography, music, drama, practical art, art appreciation, and movement.
