When you come to kindergarten, you see young faces filled
with excitement and potential.
You wonder what they’ll become and ask “what will they do tomorrow ?”
Doesn’t your child deserve such a great start? 

Kidsfirst's Christchurch, Canterbury, Banks Peninsula and West Coast kindergartens are where local kids come to learn, play and have fun.


There are so many reasons why your child should attend a childcare and education centre for their preschool years.  At our Christchurch, Canterbury, Banks Peninsula and West Coast kindergartens, young minds are stimulated and children begin to gain a love of learning, of exploring, of growing in confidence, developing social skills and knowledge.


We employ 100% qualified and registered early childhood teachers so that the most is made of every opportunity.


Our heritage stretches back over 100 years, and we're proud to have launched the educational careers of generations of Christchurch, Canterbury and West Coast kindy kids. We'll soon be proud to be able to offer services to Governors Bay and Diamond harbour families.


We've been around so long that the children and grandchildren of some of our earlier graduates now come to Kidsfirst. It's a very New Zealand thing to do that resonates with Kiwi families, as part of our culture.


We promise to take the best care of your children, to interest them and fill their time with us with excitement and fun.


Send them to one of Kidsfirst's Christchurch kindergartens, Canterbury kindergartens, West Coast or Banks Peninsula kindergartens, and who knows what they'll do next...
