BestStart Warrington

BestStart Warrington is an early learning childcare centre located just ten minutes from the centre of Christchurch, on the corner of Warrington Street and Hills Road. We cater for children aged 3 months to 5-years-old.

Weaving Children and People Together

Nursery (3 months - 2 years) - In our nursery we have a strong focus on each individual child’s care and learning. We ensure all interactions are authentic and responsive, where needs and wants are heard and met. Interactions are respectful, informing children about what is happening and letting them feel empowered in their environment and building their sense of contribution. Respect, independence, love, security and a sense of belonging happens.

Preschool (2 years - 3.5 years) - Our preschool provides a fun, meaningful and child-driven learning environment where fun and a sense of humour are essential. The preschool places an emphasis on promoting respect, communication and independence. We use rich language, encouraging the use of both verbal and non-verbal skills to communicate and resolve conflicts. Supporting children to express themselves in a variety of different ways helps provide them with skills and strategies to build and maintain relationships with others.

Prep School (3.5 years - school) - In the prep school we have a developed transition to school programme which supports both children and parents with the next stage of their child’s education journey. Our environment is set to spark curiosity, encourage collaboration and strengthen communication. We focus on ensuring our children are respectful, confident, competent and responsible and who are flexible thinkers that have a real love of learning.
