Our History

Established in 1968, in the building owned by St Andrew’s Kildare Pre-Primary school is situated on the banks of the Newlands stream. The parents at Kildare school have played an enormous role in the development of this area since 1986.

Our Philosophy

Enriching, young minds through exploration, play and creativity. We aim to develop new skills in a natural and nurturing environment. We follow Christian values that honour kindness and respect within a diverse school and community.

Why choose Kildare?

The development of the whole child while learning through play is paramount. One of our objectives throughout the school is for children to learn respect: respect for themselves, their peers, the environment and community. This all begins in our happy, fun filled pre-primary. You are welcome to make an appointment and visit the school so that you may experience Kildare as a “happy place to be” for yourself. At Kildare Pre-Primary school, teaching is what we love to do and we want every child’s first experience of school to be happy and enriching.
