Welcome to First Learners

...a place to learn and grow.

In 2002 I saw a real need in my community to provide quality early childhood education and care, where children's interests and needs are foremost in the running of the programme.

I wanted a place where families/whanau are welcome at any time so they can feel a part of their child's home away from home. I look forward to you and your child becoming involved in the First Learners experience.

Our Philoshophy

First Learners Preschool's are about providing a special and unique learning environment for your child.

First Learners are privately owned centres, providing all day education and care for children aged 0-6 years. We believe it is important to provide for the differing developmental needs of infants and young children and therefore separate areas are provided within our centres. Each of these environments is resourced to stimulate and challenge children “to grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators”( Te Whaariki 1996)
