What is a kindergarten?
A kindergarten, or kindy as they are commonly called is New Zealand is for children aged between 2 and 5 years old. As kindergartens are popular they often have waiting lists so it is recommended that put your child on the waiting list before you want them to start.  Auckland Kindergartens Association (AKA) is part of the government scheme which allows children over 3 years of age to receive 20 hours of early childhood education a week for free. AKA has extended this scheme, offering 20 hours free ECE for children from 2 years of age. 

What is a preschool?
Preschools are independent and each preschools programme will be based on a different early education philosoph. Such as, the Montessori programme, the Reggio Emilia approach, the Walford/Ruldof Steiner approach, church-led programmes, and preschools that lead onto a private school. Which ever type of preschool you choose, it is important to make sure that your child will be happy their so they can develop a love of learning.

Ficino Preschool

29 Esplanade Road, Mt Eden, Central Auckland 

Childhood is an amazing time in which children grow and develop at rates not seen at any other stage in their lives.  Ficino Preschool believes your child’s first step into their education should be a joyful one and we embrace the role we play in conjunction with you to make this a positive experience for them.

Children undertake much experiential learning during their day (both teacher-led and self-directed) and our education places significance on values, relationships and your child’s own contributions to their learning.  Our small class roll, with high teacher ratios, allows us to provide individual attention and development for your child.
