Our Programme

Our Programme

Molly’s Preschool follows the Principles, Strands and Goals of Te Whaariki ( National Early Childhood Curriculum).

We provide a very personal approach to your child's early childhood education, with internationally acclaimed programs and philosophies at its core. Our experience tells us that there's no 'one size fits all' approach, so we've created a program all of our own that is flexible and adaptable to the needs of your child as they grow and develop.

We value play is the best way of learning for young children. 'Play builds brain pathways for Thinking, Creativity, Flexibility, Empathy and many other life long skills.' -Heather Shumaker

Molly’s Programme Highlights

Transition to School Programme

Transitions are an important part of life. As our children make transitions to school, as teachers we ensure that their transitions are smooth, and supported well. We empower and encourage our children to be independent learners. We take time to learn about our children and parents' aspirations. Our transition to school programme allows our children to be stimulated and challenged, this encourages them to problem solve and work independently.


Through this programme children are encouraged to express their creativity through arts, music and dramatic play. The use of numbers, object sorting, puzzles, counting games etc helps them with literacy and numeracy learning. Songs, games, rhymes, plenty of writing experiences are offered throughout the day.



Play-based STEAM programme

“Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist.”–Carl Sagan

STEAM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, and all of these are important to include in children’s early learning. At Molly’s Preschool, our teachers facilitate learning experiences by creating opportunities for children to learn about the world through STEAM lenses. We integrate STEAM into our daily programme to optimize play-based learning and support our children's critical thinking, problem solving, and communication.


Local Trips

We regularly take the children to explore the local community, such as Mt Albert library, local shops, parks, MOTAT, museum and Auckland Town Hall. The children are provided with opportunities to visit our local places according to their interests and ability- fostering tuakana/teina relationships as well as offering our older children leadership roles. We aim to promote the holistic development of all involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent, and creative learners.
