With stunning viewshafts to Hobson Bay and the Hauraki Gulf, the new Saint Kentigern Preschool is nestled in a tree-encircled location at the western boundary of the Saint Kentigern Shore Road campus. The architecture of this beautiful new Preschool is a distinct, circular-shaped building, intentionally designed to reflect Saint Kentigern’s Presbyterian heritage.
With learning spaces built around it the central playground, the single-storey building is designed to provide a secure and active environment that eases movement and encourages exploration and connection for Saint Kentigern’s youngest students.
The building has four classrooms for different age groups, with a selection of age-appropriate resources carefully curated to ensure they are made from natural resources wherever possible. It has a dedicated art studio or atelier, a shared function and dining space, and well-equipped administrative and meeting rooms. Its purpose-built design fosters curiosity, creativity and a lifelong love of learning.
