Te Papapa Preschool is a learning community that nurtures enthusiastic, confident and responsible learners, where diversity is valued and success is celebrated.
We offer a child-centered programme where the holistic development of each individual child leads all learning.
Our preschool is a place of safety, belonging and learning. We believe that children learn naturally through play. Our programme reflects play-based learning where children gain confidence while developing self esteem and a sense of independence. Our children are encouraged to make sense of their world through questioning, exploring and expressing their ideas!
