Safe, nurturing and exploration-rich learning environmentCommunity Based Preschool
We offer your child a nurturing, stimulating environment that is both educational and fun, one that encourages children’s individual development. We are committed to providing quality care and education for preschool children aged 2 to 6 years.
The children up at Huntsbury Preschool are so incredibly lucky to have the most beautiful magical setting to play, learn and grow in!
Monday to Friday 8:30am – 12:45pm (morning session) or 8:30am – 2:30pm (extended day, with the afternoon session available for children from 2.5 years old)
We are currently licensed for up to 30 children aged 2-6 years old. We offer 30 spaces for children aged 2-6 years old for the morning sessions (8:30am to 12:45pm), and then offer up to 20 spaces for children aged 2.5-6 years old to stay on for the afternoon sessions (12:45pm to 2:30pm). If you prefer other hours, just ask.
Our Community-Based Preschool offers your tamaiti/child a safe, happy, nurturing, inclusive and exploration-rich learning environment that engages and challenges nga tamariki/children’s individual interests, strengths and dispositions. Strong collaborative relationships between whānau/family, kaiako/teacher and tamariki/children are at the heart of our practice.
Whānau are respected as the first and most important teachers of their tamariki/children. Teachers/nga kaiako value prior knowledge, embrace all cultures, actively make connections between home and Preschool, which support open and reciprocal relationships.
Huntsbury Preschool Vision
A community approach to growing/nurturing lifelong learners.
High teacher to child ratio
Huntsbury Community Preschool aims to provide an adult-to-child ratio that is above the minimum requirements. Our fundraising and funding allows us to have three – four registered teachers within our preschool.
