Preschool child care Stokes ValleyProgrammes at Kidz Planet Preschool

At Kidz Planet Preschool we provide a stimulating, developmentally appropriate programme, based on children learning through play. Our programme is child-initiated and the teaching team aims to extend play using the children’s emergent interests to encourage independent exploration and learning.

Kidz Planet Preschool believes in the principles, strands and goals of Te Whariki, for children to play, learn and grow into capable, confident, lifelong learners


We encourage the children to experience new challenges and opportunities in a fun, safe, vibrant learning environment.
