Prodigy Preschools

About Us

Pic 1With over 30 years experience in owning early childhood centres, many of those years heavily involved in the Early Childhood Sector, Ross Penman is the director/owner of Prodigy Preschools.

Taking more of a back seat these days, Prodigy Preschools is now managed and run by Sally Overton, with the help of the 3 centre managers.

Passionate Staff

We pride ourselves on having an almost 100% team of fully qualified, registered teachers, who are passionate about the work they do. We have a very low staff turnover with more than ¾ of our 22 teachers being with us for more than 5 years.

Children Take the Lead

We provide a learning environment where children take the lead, following Te Whaariki – The National Early Childhood Curriculum. All children have individual learning plans and our focus is on effective teaching through individual child directed learning.

Vibrant and Homely Environment

Pic 3We make sure that all of our children are comfortable and settled and that they are profoundly aware that they belong – that this is their ‘home away from home'.

We ensure there is a strong connection and firm relationships between the centre and families, always keeping the lines of communication active and open.

Prodigy Preschools all have a homely feel about them, with plenty of room to play outside – something that is becoming rare in Early Childhood Centres. Our environments are vibrant, ever evolving and brimming with multi-cultural diversity.

An Added Bonus!

UntitledOne of the benefits of attending a Prodigy Preschool centre is Kidzonline – our online tool that provides you with your child’s individual learning plan and documentation and assessment of their journey towards their next learning goal.

We also send you photos of your child – sometimes whilst engaged in a learning activity or sometimes when it’s just a cute photo and they’re having lots of fun!
