We are a learning community emphasising Christian values that respect the people and cultures of Aotearoa and enable all to grow and achieve their potential.

We are a community-based Christian preschool that values diversity, has a positive team environment and works in partnership with whānau/families, specialist organisations and our community.

We have a loving, caring environment that nurtures a child’s self-esteem, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual growth with a dedicated team of qualified and trainee teachers.

Our centre is committed to ongoing staff development and is a training institution. This ensures we not only stay in step with current practice but also have a regular injection of fresh ideas and learning through our early childhood education trainees.

We value connections with our community and encourage whānau/family participation and have served Nelson for over 20 years.
