Country Kids Pre-School aims to provide high quality care and education in a safe and stimulating homely environment within an interactive farmyard setting.
We believe that every child is special and unique, and therefore will love and respect every child as an individual and are committed to building reciprocal relationships with every child and their whanau so we can provide a program that best supports individual needs and abilities.

We honour article two of the treaty of Waitangi that promises preservation of the Maori language and culture. Te Reo will be used, taught and encouraged. We will encourage Christian beliefs and values and will respect and celebrate the different cultures represented at our centre.

We support the aspiration of Te Whàriki “that children will grow up as confident and competent learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they offer a valued contribution to society.”

We are committed to supporting each child on their learning journey, we aim to provide stimulating equipment and a physical environment that encourages children to explore and discover, enquire, research, problem solve, gain confidence and have fun as they grow and develop physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

“Whoever welcomes a little child in my name welcomes me”. Matthew 18:5
