We are passionate and enthusiastic about the educational programmes we offer young children. We acknowledge the curiosity of children and encourage them to question and investigate all that surrounds them in a safe and supportive environment.
At our New Zealand early childhood centres, we have combined our own educational philosophy with Te Whāriki – the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum – to ensure children grow to be competent, confident learners and communicators, secure in their sense of belonging.
We have preschools attached to three of our ACG independent schools, where our teachers deliver the New Zealand early childhood curriculum in a safe, stimulating and purpose-built environment. We offer teacher-child ratios superior to those required by the Ministry of Education.
With our preschools being located within the wider school campus, we are able to create an integrated family culture across the school.
Zig Zag Zoo’s two early learning centres in Queenstown offer carefully crafted, hands-on learning programmes within attractive, purpose-built environments. We put our children and their families at the heart of the spaces we create, the relationships we form and the programmes we deliver.
Our early learning centre in Howick, Auckland, is purpose-built for children. We believe in a warm, calm and nurturing approach to education, where play is central to learning and each child has a voice and is respected as a person.
Our ACG international schools in South East Asia offer early childhood education as an integral part of our K-13 programme. In our supportive and nurturing early childhood centres, children gain confidence, life skills and the educational foundations they will need to successfully transition to primary school.
