Our son and daughter both became part of the Queens Preschool family. I knew it was the right place for us as soon as I walked through the door and never looked back. We always felt completely included in all aspects of our children's care, every day you were welcomed warmly and genuinely and made to feel like Queens was a safe space to help our children grow and thrive. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Make sure to visit and see for yourself!

I honestly can not think of enough great things to write about Queens preschool. I was so worried about putting my son into preschool at 5.5months but the staff were so kind, supportive and helpful they made the transition so easy. They teach my son so much, he loves being there. He has great friends, teachers and he is constantly learning - as am I. I love this place dearly.
Skye Macfarlane likes: the kindness of the staff. The amazing culture, The variety of what he learns.

We have been lucky enough to be a part of the Queens Preschool whanau for the past 9 years. Our three children have been loved, nurtured and educated by the amazing staff and are curious, resilient kind little humans that have transitioned easily to school thanks to everything they have learnt at Queens. With such a small number of kids you can rest assured that your child will be truly cherished at the centre and that they will receive the one on one attention that is so so important for their development during these formative years. I couldn't recommend Queens Preschool more highly

Queens has truly been a home away from home, they have been part of our family now for nearly 10 years and provide an amazing, caring environment for children. They use the interests of your child to develop their programmes and they take the kids out in the community to explore. The centre is small and does not segregate kids, siblings are free to spend time together regardless of age. They go above and beyond every day, I truly believe the staff love my kids almost as much as I do.
