Most children in our kindergartens can benefit from up to 20 hours free each week – even two year olds!
More time at kindy means more time for fun, friends, and learning with Kidsfirst
Even 2 year olds can get 20 hours free at Kidsfirst.
Many whānau also choose for their tamariki to benefit from a full kindy week by staying for another 10 hours (paying a small extra fee). Sometimes you’ll see a limited number of our kindergartens offering free or discounted hours for this. These special offers are often time limited, and only available at specific services. See if there’s a Kidsfirst Get More kindergarten near you.
Fees are normally charged for the following:
- All hours used by children aged under two years.
- Any weekly hours over 20 hours for children aged 2-5 years.
You may be eligible for a WINZ subsidy.
