The Secret Garden is a boutique preschool in central Huapai, and just out of Kumeu.


Designed for children aged 2 - 5 years, we offer 20 hours ECE free for children 3 years +.  Half and full day sessions are available.

With a maximum of 30 children, our teachers can really get to know your child well, making their preschool experience the very best it can be.

We look forward to seeing you and your child at The Secret Garden!


"I couldn't be any happier with The Secret Garden Huapai for my daughter. It is everything AND more that I would want in a Preschool for her. She started 3weeks ago and absolutely loves going and adores her teachers, she is always so happy and full of smiles when I pick her up! I would highly recommend The Secret Garden to anyone, Jodi the owner could not make you feel more comfortable and at ease and is the perfect person to run such a wonderful place" - MoniqueNovember 2015
