Highly recommended by me. A really friendly environment with high teacher to children ratios, where parents are welcomed to be involved as much, or as little as they like.
Te Pahu Preschool allows me to work part-time for minimal childcare costs and I can still be involved in my child's learning.
Both of my children have had very positive experiences here from the age of two through to starting school.
