Welcome to Newbees Preschool

Welcome and thanks for stopping by! Our homely and well-established Preschool offers a safe and secure environment for children aged 2-5yrs. With a super convenient location, you will find us nestled in the heart of Kerikeri’s educational precinct, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

At Newbees Preschool we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early years of development. Parents love the rich sense of community, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. We value input from parents, teachers, whānau, children and our wonderful community.

 Your child will love the well laid out environment designed to promote independence, responsibility, self-help skills and social development. The centre’s inside and outside areas have spaces that incorporate the integration of all curriculum areas – science, art, literacy, dance and drama, technology, creative corner, a family play area and a quiet space for reading and reflection. Children are surrounded by their friends who are of similar ages where they build strong friendships and learn from one another.

With the inviting smell of home cooked meals and baking, you won’t have to search very far to find our fabulous and passionate centre cook who freshly prepares all meals in the heart of our centre. We provide all enrolled children with morning-tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.

We proudly operate our own Newbees Preschool centre van, allowing us to help support both new and existing families who require assistance with transport to the centre. We also utilise this awesome resource for excursions out and about in our community!

“My child has been part of the Provincial whānau since he was 9 months old. On the whole it has been great for him. Made him very sociable and confident. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. I am very grateful to the service and what you have done for him."

“My grandchildren love Newbees Preschool and that is all to do with the wonderful staff and great variety of activities available for them. They enjoy the food that is prepared for them and I have noticed my fussy boy is eating a wider variety of food which is really great.”
