Queen Margaret Preschool is a co-educational inner city Preschool for boys and girls aged three and four years old. Our small and friendly Preschool 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.
Children’s portfolios are available for parents online through Storypark. Portfolios provide parents with invaluable information about their child’s learning and development.
Queen Margaret Preschool’s fees are competitive within the Wellington region and is open 48 weeks of the year. The Preschool 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 and son Edward are QM Preschool alumni. We have found the Preschool 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 have made at QMC.” Sarah Wales, Junior School Parent.
“We have had two children at the QM Preschool. Both of them enjoyed their time there and thrived in the positive learning environment. We are at ease when our children are at school knowing they are learning, cared for and safe,” Megan and Tony Harrison, QM Preschool Parents.
“We’ve had both our girls attend QM Preschool, and we’ve really loved our experience there. The teachers are wonderful, and the atmosphere and learning environment is well-structured. Our girls looked forward to going to school every day. I would highly recommend QM Preschool to anyone looking for a superior experience for their child,” Anna Lillis, QM Preschool Parent.
