Mercury Bay Preschool provides 20 hours free ECE care for children three years and over.

All groups have a high teacher to child ratio with close interaction and involvement. This ensures your child is getting the most our of their learning experience. 

Our tamariki are very fortunate to have a kaiako who is also a volunteer for the Whitianga Fire Brigade. She came over after a non-serious call out to show the tamariki what happens when she is called out. While running towards the centre in her gear, one of the children excitedly called out “look, a firefighter!” He was a little bit puzzled when the firefighter turned out to be one of his teachers/kaiako.
