Nurturing Early Learning for Pre-school children, in the heart of St Heliers

Are you looking for a pre-school or kindergarten in St Heliers to nurture your child? As Early Childhood Educators, we enjoy providing a safe, caring and happy learning environment. Catering for two to five-year-olds, your child’s early learning journey starts here!

Nestled underneath the well-known St Heliers Centre, our kindy is licensed for 33 pre-school children. Moreover, our Tamariki benefit from a small, focused space where they can find a sense of belonging, and build confidence and friendships. Similarly, with a ratio of four staff to 33 children, your child gets the attention they need to develop early learning skills whilst having their personal needs supported. Likewise, our qualified Early Learning ECE Teachers take pride in offering a safe and happy kindergarten in St Heliers where children are provided with the skills to gain confidence and a sense of self-worth. As a Christian Kindergarten, we teach our children the values of love, respect and tolerence.

LITTLE EXPLORER SESSIONS (half day in the afternoon)

Monday and Friday afternoon kindergarten sessions are reserved for our Little Explorers. This special half day kindy session is designed to support our older children as they transition to school. Our 4 – 5 year olds learn skills to encourage independence and get ready for school. Led by our highly qualified ECE teachers.


Our St Heliers kindergarten operates over the four school terms and closes during school holidays.
