About Us

Every child is a gift from God

Sunshine Christian Preschool opened in August, 2010. It provides a multicultural, family friendly environment that has developed strong links with our community. Licensed for 80 children, we nurture children aged approximately 1.5 – 6 years.

We believe that each child is a gift from God and is best taught well while they are young. Our Learning program is based on Biblical teaching and the principles of Te Whāriki (New Zealand ECE curriculum) which guides us in the development of children’s cognitive, emotional, physical, intellectual, language, spiritual and social needs.
