Growing the kindergarten network
Congratulations to Kidsfirst Kindergartens on opening a new early learning centre at Franz Joseph. "The new Franz Josef centre, like all that Kidsfirst operates, will work within traditional Kidsfirst values” said Sherryll Wilson, Kidsfirst Chief Executive. “Our not-for-profit ethos and values base, commitment to the highest quality teaching and educational programme, community links, parent connection opportunities and ‘kiwiness’ will form the basis of everything we do. It’s the best of both worlds: the traditional preschool experience so many families still want, but with hours and the educational programme updated to suit today’s world.”
The new Franz Joseph centre is the second new service Kidsfirst has opened this year. In March, Kidsfirst Diamond Harbour Early Learning Centre opened its doors. “Building the centre on Diamond Harbour Primary School’s grounds means that a strong relationship has already developed between the two groups of teachers. Another priority for our youngest 21st century learners was keeping the building carbon free, with solar panels making the entire building carbon neutral.” said Sherryll Wilson.
