Build strong foundations for life

Welcome to Ficino Preschool

“Play is the highest form of research” – Einstein

Ficino Preschool is an intimate boutique early childhood centre for children aged between three and five years old. Located in the heart of Mount Eden, adjacent to its sister school Ficino School (primary and intermediate level), we will offer your children a home away from home; a place where they can learn and play happily with love and support from their teachers.

Our calm and friendly atmosphere will provide space for children to explore, enquire, experiment and practise new skills at their own pace. Inspired by two simple principles of love and play, Ficino Preschool’s nurturing curriculum balances the spiritual, social, emotional, physical and academic needs of each child.

The Preschool is now open, and accepting applications.

Make your child’s first step into their formal education a big, joyful one.
