Because children are important to God, children are important to us.
Immanuel Preschool believes in holistic approach that carefully conflates physical, emotional, mental, social, economic and spiritual care for child’s development. Therefore by providing great environment, learning opportunities, care, education, comfort and assurance we aim at bringing out the God-created potential from each and every individual child.
Our vision is to provide great opportunities to bring out the best from each child. We are highly focussed on quality care and education which would lay a strong foundation for the child and would enable the child to easily transition into the primary school environment with confidence and enthusiasm. We also respect different cultural beliefs and would encourage participation of the families in the life of the centre.
Immanuel Preschool promotes an open door policy and communication process that would encourage the children, staff, parents/whanau and management to openly discuss and contribute to the running of the centre to create a sense of belonging towards the centres environment.
Immanuel Preschool believes in offering a nurturing, safe, aesthetically pleasing and stimulating environment. Families, Whanau, Teachers and support staff form a strong community working together for the care and education. Our philosophical approach is very distinctive because it incorporates both free choice and structured planed activities to extend the children's interests alongside the Christian values and morals.
If your child is 3, 4 or 5 years of age the cost can be fully subsidised up to 20 hours a week (Terms and Conditions apply).
