We believe in providing quality early childhood education to our children and their whanaus. Our teaching philosophies and our commitments by the Annabel team are what makes early learning at Annabel’s different from the rest.
Our Preschool Space:
Our Darfield preschool offers the most of the country environment with our large outdoor garden and play area for our children to enjoy. Our welcoming homely feel gives our children a sense of whanaunatanga and lets them learn and develop in a relaxed environment. Our separate nursery and over 2’s area means our children can be with children their own age, helping them best develop their interpersonal skills.
Why Our Darfield Preschool:
Our fantastic teacher ratios are well below MOE requirements meaning each child is in the best hands to fully develop their skills and knowledge. Our enthusiastic teachers at Annabel’s Darfield are strong advocates of the free play philosophy. They encourage children to play how they choose, letting them develop their imagination and interpersonal skills. Our preschool has a mixture of ages, ranging from in and over 2’s.

Our philosophy strives for each child to reach their full potential and this starts at the beginning of their learning journey, we aspire to set each child up for the best learning journey possible in their coming years.
