NAU MAI HAERE MAI! WELCOME TO COUNTRY KIDS PRE-SCHOOL

"Growing tamariki through nurture and nature"

 

OUR STORY

What We’re All About

Country Kids Pre-School is set in an idyllic country setting, where children have the opportunity to interact with a range of small farm animals, from feeding the lambs or pigs, collecting eggs from the chooks, cuddling the rabbits or playing with Pippa the pre-school dog.


Children have the opportunity to help take care of the vegetable garden and small orchard and enjoy a range of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Children are free to enjoy and discover the natural environment and taught ways to preserve and protect it.

We aim to provide stimulating equipment and a physical environment that encourages children to explore and discover, enquire, research, problem solve and have fun as they grow and develop physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

Our centre is purpose built to create an efficient learning environment that is homely, nurturing and stimulating.

Our small group sizes and high teacher:child ratio foster a peaceful and relaxed setting and allow for close and supportive relationships which we believe is important for children’s health and wellbeing. 


Christian values and virtues are important to us so will be modelled and encouraged. Our goal is for children to develop independence, confidence and a love of learning.

OUR VISION

 

To be a learning community that strives to make a difference in the lives of our tamariki, supporting them to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners.

We've developed a unique farmyard setting that gives tamariki opportunities to interact and care for our farm animals, to explore, discover, overcome challenges, and be inspired in our natural outdoor environment, fostering kaitiakitanga (guardianship, protection and sustainable practices).

We will achieve this with manaakitanga, by developing respectful, caring, and supportive relationships with tamariki and their whanau.

Christian values are at the heart of everything we do.
