Kidsfirst kindergartens are better because of caring, professional teachers, great big backyards and so much more.
How Kidsfirst kindergartens are Better Because
There are so many reasons to choose kindergarten – and Kidsfirst’s 66 kindergartens – for your child’s first steps into formal education. Translated from its German origins, Kindergarten means ‘children’s garden’, and one of the differences you’ll notice when you visit one of our centres, is our Great Big Backyards. They’re tailor made for exploration, learning, fun, and nurturing a love of nature.
Kidsfirst fully qualified, registered teachers guide children to learn through play and explore the world at their own pace, in their own time.
As your local kindergarten association, Kidsfirst is non-profit, and we have more than 110 years experience providing quality local early childhood education.

Kindergarten has been at the heart of communities for more than 100 years, and is so well-loved, that multiple generations of whānau choose us over and over again. Our kaiako really get to know families and tamariki, and see every child as an individual.
We’re committed to making quality kindergarten education accessible to as many children as possible – even two year olds get 20 hours free at Kidsfirst, and many of our kindergartens have special fees offers.
