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.
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.
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.
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.
“Our daughter Jessica (6) is a QMC Pre-School alumnae and our son Edward (4) is currently enrolled there. We have found the Pre-School to be well equipped, enjoying a brand-new residence and play-area with access to the main school’s library and gymnasium. The quality of teaching staff is the school’s greatest asset. The teachers are supportive and engaging; they have a great rapport with both children and parents. Jessica’s transition to the Junior School was particularly well-managed. We are delighted with the progress Jessica and Edward are making at QMC.” Sarah Wales – Current Pre-School and Junior School Parent.
“Queen Margaret Pre-School is an amazing start to your child’s journey in education. The staff are so dedicated, and consistently go above and beyond always exceeding our expectations. You couldn’t ask for a better place to invest in your child’s future.” Angela Henry, Current Pre-School Parent.
“Since enrolling Ava at Queen Margaret Pre-School we are seeing marvelous social growth. She’s thriving, becoming confident and independent under the guidance of the wonderful supportive teachers in a welcoming and nurturing environment. Ava is always excited to tell us about her day and loves talking about the activities and her experiences at school.” Susan Ward – Current Pre-School Parent.
