What Our Whānau Say

"Our child really enjoys going to kindy. It is definitely an integral part of preparation for school."

"Two of our children have been through Ashhurst Kindergarten, there is a real bond – the teachers are welcoming and make an effort to get to know younger siblings."

"My son has learned lots from his teachers and from being with other children, (mainly behaviour and social skills). Ashhurst in particular is important to us, as we live rural and Palmerston and Feilding are a long way away."

This setup teaches our children how plants and goldfish can benefit each other in a symbiotic relationship. The filter sucks up the water, feeds the plants, the plants filter the water and return it to the goldfish tank.
