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. That’s why our early childhood environments are purpose-built to enhance children’s learning and growth.
During these early years, children acquire a variety of important skills, knowledge and attitudes that will affect their ability to learn, their personal development, their relationships with others and their future participation in society. Located in West Auckland, ACG Sunderland Preschool encourages children to see learning as both enjoyable and useful and provides a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.
At ACG Tauranga, we introduce children to a love of play and learning, by creating opportunities to explore, experiment, solve problems and express themselves as individuals.
Positioned alongside our Primary School and College, ACG Tauranga Preschool offers the same care, support, and safe and nurturing environment found within our world-class school.
Located in Karaka, Auckland – ACG Strathallan’s preschool programme reinforces and builds on this natural inclination to learning by offering varied, stimulating and enjoyable learning experiences. The preschool programme provides the basis for the acquisition of basic skills in numeracy and literacy and will prepare your child for a successful learning experience in the future.
Opening in 2020, ACG Parnell Preschool will offer an enriched learning environment for young children, enabling them to develop the essential skills and knowledge to be successful at primary school. The preschool is being custom designed to ensure our preschool students have the very best facilities and teaching spaces. All preschool students will have first priority into the ACG Parnell Primary.

The Zig Zag Zoo early learning centre is passionate and enthusiastic about providing a respectful, responsive and peaceful educational learning programme for all infants and children.
