Welcome to The Secret Garden.
We are Huapai's newest preschool, having opened in September 2015. Our beautiful newly renovated space is designed for a maximum of 30 children aged from 2 years to school starting age.
Our large open plan indoor space is light and sun filled with a covered outdoor UV protected area for children in summer and a warm enclosed sunny patio just perfect for messy activities in winter! With over 1000 square meters of lush grass lawn, complete with mature fruit trees, greenhouse, a paved bicycle trail, a magical wooden playground and fabulous sand play pit for creative construction, The Secret Garden really is the perfect place for discovering and learning both inside and out.
It is our aim that all children at The Secret Garden receive a wide range of rich learning experiences whilst they feel 'at home' in a genuinely warm and nurturing environment. Children are encouraged to develop their personal capabilities, strengths, interests and learning styles.
Our experienced team of professional Early Childhood Educators strive to ensure each and every child at The Secret Garden LOVES their time at preschool and has their individual needs met with love, patience and understanding. Our teachers encourage children to think for themselves, make decisions and work towards their own solutions, by expressing their own ideas and feelings.
We work together closely with parents and families to ensure all of our children are happy, healthy and fufilling their absolute potential for learning. We feel it is a privilege to play such an important part in nurturing and guiding your children through their preschool years and we genuinely love what we do.
We hope you will visit us at The Secret Garden soon, but in the meantime please don't hesitate to get in touch by phone or email for a chat.
Here is some recent parent feedback:
"Our son has settled in so easily and loves going to "kindy" everyday. There are so many exciting and interesting experiences set up for the children that really encourage imaginative play. Our little man always talks about his friends and the teachers and he gets so excited when he sees photos of himself having fun on the computer. You know its a good place when he talks about it on the weekends too!" - Masina
"I have just read all the other reviews and would have to agree with every single one of them. My little man runs in the door in the morning excited to see what's planned for the day. He knows each of the teachers by name and talks about them at home. He has made several little friends who he also talks about. I hear him singing new songs he has picked up and telling his big sister about the cool things he has been doing. Thanks girls... You make a great team!" - Sarah
"I have been so impressed by the Secret Garden. It's an amazing space with fabulous teaching staff. My daughter is loving her time there!" - Tamryn
"Beautiful environment indoor and out to send your wee kiddies to." - Tess
