Rising Stars Preschool

Rising Stars Preschool is a privately owned centre located inside an Indoor Sports Stadium in Waiwhakaiho, New Plymouth. The centre is a pack-away centre and is licensed for 60 children over the age of two years old.

Alongside the education and care provision, children participate in a sports programme. This programme is designed to expose children to a range of skills, as well as helping them develop an understanding of how to keep their bodies fit and healthy. All teachers are qualified, and the coaches are successful, local sports people.

Exposing children to the sporting culture is evident within our daily routines. Children learn basic skills such as catching, kicking and throwing when involved in these sessions which are administered by experienced coaches. These coaches are dedicated to extending on the children’s current skills, whilst also offering them new ones.

Rising Stars Preschool works in partnership with all families/whanau of the community to ensure that parent’s aspirations and concerns are respected and listened to. Families are encouraged to be involved in all areas of the programme where they are able to observe and acknowledge the learning that takes place during their child’s time at the centre.

Quality resources and equipment are provided enabling your child’s individual strengths to be recognised in our safe and attractive learning environment. Not to mention Rising Stars Preschool offers an impressive outdoor area and large sandpit.

We offer a free pick up and drop off service based on individual needs.

Rising Stars Preschool is located at 81B Katere Road, Waiwhakaiho.
