About Forfar Nursery & Preschool
Welcome to Forfar Nursery and Preschool - we are a community based childcare centre that offers early childhood education for children aged 0 through to 5 years.
The centre is a large renovated, homely villa on expansive grounds that offer children a truly "backyard" play experience, with mature trees and real grass!
Forfar has a separate nursery area for children aged 0 -2 years, and a preschool area for children aged 2 -5 years. Most children enrol in our nursery and continue through the preschool before heading off to school. Forfar will become you and your child's home away from home.
Qualified and experienced teachers are a centre's greatest resource. We have a fantastic team of long serving teachers who are warm and loving, heaps of fun, a little bit crazy sometimes, and are 100% dedicated to growing great kids.
At Forfar we are well resourced with equipment and toys that encourage children to explore for themselves and learn how to make sense of their world. We believe resources should entice, engage and challenge children to instil a love of learning.
We value independence and believe in teaching resilience in our children. We also offer a wide range of activities to encourage shared experiences, working cooperatively with their peers, while at the same time supporting individual learning styles.
Warm and genuine relationships with family are the cornerstone of what we do at Forfar. We recognise you and your whanau as your child's first teachers and believe we can work together with open communication to nurture your child in their first years.
We offer full day spaces (minimum for 6 hours a day) and provide nutritious home-cooked meals.
Please call for more information and to arrange an appointment to come in and see our preschool and discuss your childcare requirements .
