A hub of happiness.
Mount Pleasant Kindergarten opened on the 1st of February 1954 and since then it's been a favourite kindergarten to photograph, especially during the rebranding of the Association.
The brand development and marketing plan developed in 2008 was in response to increased commercial competition but with kindergartens like this one, with numerous smiling faces and lots of activity, it's no wonder that Kidsfirst has continued to thrive in this competitive environment.
Check out the photos below to see why Mount Pleasant is such a hub of happiness in the community.
Our website uses material from the Canterbury Westland Kindergarten Association's own archives, Kindergarten Chronicles and other CWFKA publications, and those sourced from the kindys themselves. Unless otherwise noted, we believe all photographs are those of the kindergarten association and sincerely apologise if we have used any images inadvertently, without appropriate credits or permissions. If so, please advise us so we can rectify the situation.
