Pukeko Preschool offers a unique opportunity for children to experience quality early childhood education in an idyllic rural setting, in our new purpose built centre.

We are a community-led, licensed Early Childhood Centre. Nestled next to the grounds of Tauwhare Primary School, our small preschool with a big heart provides a solid start to your child’s education.

We are dedicated to providing a variety of stimulating, challenging and exciting play experiences and activities in a well-resourced preschool which supports your child in developing to their full potential.

We have moved!!

Our new building is finished right next door at 20 Scotsman Valley Road.

Our new hours are 7.30am to 5.30pm, and are now accepting children aged 5 months to 5 years.

The Next Big Step… 

At Pukeko Preschool we recognize the importance of making the preschool to primary school transition as smooth as possible. Being so close to Tauwhare Primary School gives your children the opportunity to watch the comings and goings of primary school life. We play on the field, explore the school grounds and meet the school teachers. We can even be found in the library and at school events. Your child will have a wonderful overview of primary school life ready for their next step. 

Big Plans… 

While our new building is looking fantastic we have big plans for the landscaping around the preschool. One of our amazing mum’s has put together a landscaping plans to include vegetable gardens, chickens, mud kitchens and much much more. 

We can’t wait to get the rest of the plan finished, but in the mean time we have an amazing outdoor space for our children to enjoy.
