In 2017, at Kidsfirst Kindergartens we take inspiration from the tamariki who come to us, our amazing teachers, the engaged parents and caregivers we see each day and the supportive communities that we call home. Help us to celebrate a year of inspiration with learning, excitement, thinking and fun. 



 We're constantly inspired by tamariki.

Each day they amaze and surprise us -

and encourage us to do our best for them.



Our internal values include 'inspiring' - which is at the very heart of everything we do.
