(Luke 2:42)

Westminster Christian Preschool is a Bible-based, Christ-centred early childhood centre catering for 35 children per session, aged 2-5 years, giving parents the option of either full days, sessional enrolments or a combination of both.

We provide the vital beginning of a child’s formal education, which can be continued through the Primary departments of Westminster Christian School. Being a Christian preschool, everything is taught from a biblical perspective. This means we teach biblical truths and morals, because we believe the Bible to be God’s written word, to all people everywhere, in every generation.

Philosophy
Our friendly, dedicated, professional teaching team believes that children learn best through careful guidance and support. Our planned/structured but flexible programme is based on the seven days of creation and the national early childhood curriculum document, Te Whaariki.

We aim to support each child to grow in wisdom, in stature, in favour with God and in favour with man. We are committed to real partnership with families and recognize the dual cultural heritage of New Zealand and the cultural diversity of our local community.

At Westminster Christian Preschool, your child will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop the Fruits of the Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness and Self-control)
  • Develop a sense that they are unique, special and made in the image of God
  • Develop their social skills
  • Enhance their communication skills
  • Develop early reading, writing & math skills
  • Learn about differences
  • Develop physical self-confidence
  • Be creative and self-expressive
  • Problem-solve and take risks
  • Build on self-help skills
  • Work within acceptable limits, routines and boundaries.
