BestStart Wales Street
BestStart Wales Street (formerly ABC Rangiora North) are committed to working in partnership with our parents and whanau. We ensure a welcoming and friendly environment is maintained by staff so families know they can come and watch their child play and chat to staff about their child.
We believe it is of the utmost importance to support the development of a child’s independence through critical thinking, problem solving, creating working theories, creativity and the ability to be responsible for their own thinking.

Each child’s preschool journey is represented and celebrated in a special achievement journal, which is sent home at the end of the child’s time at ABC Rangiora North to treasure. We also communicate and share stories through Storypark. Parents and whanau are also encouraged to contribute to the books, sharing stories, experiences, photos and comments from home.
What makes us different:
• Big playground with a large grass area bike track, plants and other great equipment and resources
• Warm, friendly and home-like environment
• Family oriented centre

Our latest centre events and stories
We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.
