Kindy is Ready for you!
Kidsfirst’s fully qualified, registered teachers are one of the reasons families are drawn to our kindergartens. These special people bring years, and sometimes even decades of experience to their work, and take pride in making a difference in the lives of tamariki, whānau and the communities our not-for-profit kindys serve.
When you and your family join Kidsfirst, you become a part of our whānau. Our teaching teams get to know families and children well so they can tailor learning programmes to suit. They’re also a great source of information on the early years – check out some of their ideas in our stories below.
