Queen Margaret Pre-School is a co-educational inner city Pre-School for boys and girls aged three and four years old. Our small and friendly Pre-School places great importance on developing a close relationship between the child, teacher and the family.


We implement a programme using two curriculum frameworks: Te Whāriki and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP).


The programme is shaped by the belief that young children are capable learners and are well positioned to acquire early literacy and numeracy skills.

Transition to the Junior School

The transition for girls into the Queen Margaret College Junior School is seamless as it is located nearby which creates a sense of familiarity and confidence.


Queen Margaret Pre-School is situated in a brand new, purpose-built building at Queen Margaret College with access to the College Gymnasium, College Library and a weekly art session with a specialist art teacher.

Enrolment Fees

Queen Margaret Pre-School’s fees are competitive within the Wellington region and is open 48 weeks of the year. The Pre-School is open Monday to Friday 7.30am – 5.30pm.

Pre-School Staff

We have a highly qualified and experienced teaching team who share the same teaching philosophy and committed to facilitating a high quality education and nurturing environment for children.
