Our two boys have both been through Queens Preschool throughout the past 8 years from 6 months old to 5 years of age. We couldn't recommend this amazing preschool more! The support that they staff have given to raise our bi-lingual sons (English and te reo Māori) has been more than we ever would have expected. They go above and beyond every day, and we know that our boys wouldn't be the confident wee boys that they are today without the years they have spent at Queens Preschool. Ngā mihi aroha ki a koutou!
