Our Central Otago kindergartens are taking enrolments now, and we can’t wait to see you!

Kidsfirst’s non-profit kindergartens have been part of Canterbury, West Coast and Central Otago communities for more than a century, and with our wonderful Central Otago kaiako making a huge difference to the lives of tamariki, we’re excited to welcome more to our Kidsfirst whānau.

For over 100 years, Kidsfirst’s South Island Kindergartens are where children have come to explore, make friends and grow a life-long love of learning. Our nearly 70 non-profit kindys are #betterbecause for a whole lot of reasons – including fully trained and registered teaching teams, an emphasis on community connection and bicultural heritage, Kidsfirst’s legendary Big Backyards and a unique learning-through-play approach.

You can get 20 hours free each week* – even for 2 year olds! (Conditions apply).

Keen to find out more? Fill out the form, and we’ll get back to you – but places are filling fast, so if you want to experience all of the wonders of te ao Kindy, be sure to get in touch now.
