What we offer

At Woolston we are a community based early childcare centre. We provide high-quality care and education for tamariki (children). We believe children learn through play therefore we offer a mainly play-based curriculum.  Play-based learning provides children with the freedom to explore and be themselves. Here, we recognise that every child is unique. We strive for each individual to reach their full potential.

Currently we have a centre-wide team of 8 including our manager, office administrator, 4 qualified teachers and 2 unqualified support teachers.

Childcare from 3 months to school age

Our centre caters for children from 3 months of age to 6 years old.

Our teacher to child ratio is 1 to 4 in the under two room (nursery) and 1 teacher to 8 children in the over two room (preschool).

“My son has thrived at Woolston Community Preschool. After returning from overseas I was worried he would be unsettled, but the teachers and kids have made him feel at home. It’s truly like a big family, the staff really care and are interested in the children and their families. We are so glad we found Woolston Community Preschool” – Emma

“After talking to parents around the area we decided that Woolston Preschool was the best place for our daughter to flourish, and we have not been disappointed. Woolston preschool has exceeded our expectations. The staff are friendly and inviting and have been particularly fantastic with our daughter who struggles with separation anxiety. The staff are accommodating and have looked at all possible ways to help her transition, she is now a different girl, happy at preschool and has built amazing relationships with the teachers and her little friends. Woolston Preschool is a great place where children are taught to respect each other, follow, lead and explore, all in their safe environment. We are truly grateful for the teaching and guidance at Woolston Preschool. – Penny and Robbie
