Albany Preschool

City Impact Church Preschool North Shore


Our City Impact Church Preschool in North Shore is part of the Church Campus right between Albany and Browns Bay on East Coast Road. Just minutes from the Oteha motorway on-ramp, Albany Mall and industrial areas as well as popular Browns Bay Beach and shops.

The Preschool is an over 2’s Centre with a focus on preparing children for school.  Our aim is to empower children by creating an engaging environment, to extend and support children’s interests and to equip them in becoming confident, lifelong learners. Our unique Christian philosophy and Biblical curriculum are woven throughout all aspects of our Preschool Programme, all while offering an academic and developmental approach to learning.

Preparing to transition from Preschool to Primary School is an exciting time in any child’s development and we love to make it special! Our goal is to give your child the best possible start to their school days. Our experienced and passionate teachers provide fun learning experiences for children to learn literacy, phonics, letter formation, numeracy and number recognition all while extending their individual goals, interests and strengths.
