 Welcome/Haere Mai   

  Bishopdale Community Preschool was established by the community within the Bishopdale Mall complex over 40 years ago.  Since the Christchurch earthquake disruption we have been operating from the Breens Intermediate School site on Breens Road.  In 2016 we opened our new building on this site.

We operate as a registered society that is not-for-profit; this allows us to put any surplus funds back into the development of the centre. We have a management committee of volunteer parents that together with the teaching team and the centre manager work to continually improve the service we provide to the community.

Our Vision

It is our vision that each child that enters our learning community is viewed as an individual, with their own indigenous culture and our community provides an environment that accepts and values this uniqueness, so that each child can develop a strong sense of belonging. We encourage them to explore and interact with this environment so that they may reach their full potential.

Our Aspiration

It is our aspiration to provide a service that supports children and their families so that they may grow up as confident and competent learners, ready and able to explore their world with courage and curiosity.  We believe that it takes a community to achieve this, learning together, sharing values, beliefs, and knowledge.  We welcome you to join our community of learners and participate in helping young children make connections with the people, places and things in their world.
