“Where children are loved and love to learn.”


The mission of the Waipuna Chapel Preschool is to provide a Christian learning environment. A place where children and their families will experience the love of God.  

The preschool will provide experiences that will nurture the development of the whole child:  socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and spiritually.


To provide a high-quality preschool program that is loving, stimulating and safe for the children, their families and our staff.

For each child to grow in the knowledge of the love of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, and to know that He desires a relationship with each one of us.

To encourage the development of the whole child through positive relationships and with developmentally appropriate activities and materials that reflect the culture of our island home.


To support each child in developing their potential at their own pace within their individual stages of development. Our teaching is based on developmental stages in all areas of learning: Cognitive, Physical, Social, Emotional, Spiritual. Each area of development is important and inter-connected.

There are an additional six specific content areas through which the five areas are strengthened and applied.

The specific areas are:
Literacy • Mathematics • Science • Social Studies • Health and Safety •The Arts
