Nurturing, loving and respecting one another

Molly’s Preschool seeks to provide a warm and nurturing environment, where children develop a sense of belonging and create a healthy, happy, and secure approach to learning and living with peers. At Molly’s Preschool, we strive to meet the children’s individual needs with love, patience, and understanding.


Our teachers believe in creating a trusting relationship with our children so that they are confident in making their learning choices. We believe in providing rich stimulating learning experiences that challenge and caters to our children’s interest and needs.


Our intention as teachers is to inform and plan children’s learning by using Te Whāriki as our foundation of learning as well as incorporating Te Tiriti o Waitangi into our daily practice. At Molly’s Preschool children are acknowledged as individuals, and their mana and wairua (well-being), personal capabilities, cultural backgrounds, and learning styles are encouraged and respected.


Our Mission Statement​

Our goal is to give each child a warm environment that encourages development of social skills, independence, and a positive self-image.

Our experienced kaiako (teachers) acknowledge and embrace children as individuals and believe that children bring in their own taonga (uniqueness and giftedness). Our aim is to create a trusting relationship with children and whakamana (empower) children to make their own independent choices, where they get to work towards their problems and solutions and express their feelings freely.
