Preschool & Nursery

"A welcoming, nurturing and inclusive environment for children and families."

Laughter, curiosity and discovery thrive here

 

An excellent reputation in the community and a well established, natural outdoor environment make Te Whare Rama Balcairn St your go-to for high quality care and education for your child.   There are 38 children in the preschool and 12 in our nursery, connected by the playgrounds, so siblings are able to interact with each other.

 

With our preschool opening in 1990 and our separate nursery in 2011, our longevity is supported by strong relationships with parents/ whānau and children. We offer a safe, caring and respectful environment for your child to thrive and build a solid foundation for their learning journey.

Our team is responsive to the needs and development of tamariki in our care and we encourage children to have a strong sense of identity, as well as having fun.  Our welcoming, nurturing and inclusive principles create many spaces for creativity. 

 

We value that each child is unique and cultural diversity is celebrated here. Laughter, curiosity and discovering thrive in this centre. 

 

Our smaller nursery ensures we are able to have key teachers to provide primary care for our infants and toddlers.

Come and see what everyone is talking about. Make Te Whare Rama Balcairn Street your destination for fun, values-based learning for your child.
