Here's a glimpse into just some of what's been happening
in and around Kidsfirst Kindergartens...






Join us in 2019 for all the fun and learning that real kindergarten promises, (and the great value!) with trained teachers, well planned environments and lots of happy smiles on young faces.




Can't wait to get to kindy? It's great value and there are 20 hours FREE for most children.     Exploring art and the colour yellow was great fun for this group from Kidsfirst Sunbeam.
A 'Bishops Box' is a great way that one kindergarten  found to share its produce with their community.
     World Wetlands Day connects us to our environment and reminds us about protecting the planet.



Our wonderful big backyards are a fantastic place to run, play, and learn.







Our big backyards are something our tamarki and their parents and caregivers really love...

Welcoming visitors to our kindergartens is one way we celebrate our community connections.







 Kidsfirst Shirley held a memorable Grandparents' Day that brought whānau together with lots of laughter.







Here's to the Chinese New Year

- it's the Year of the Pig.


We're leaders in early childhood education with kindergartens in neighbourhoods across Christchurch, the West Coast, Banks Peninsula and Central Otago.
