Arrowtown has two preschools on three sites.
Arrowtown Preschool is a non-profit organisation that guarantees any profit is invested back into learning opportunities for the children. Children aged 12 months to 3 years go to the Cotter Avenue site. It is next to Arrowtown Primary School, allowing excellent ties to the school, including a buddy programme. Children age 4 to 5 attend the Durham Street site, from where they can explore the natural world at the river reserve and make use of the museum and library. For more information phone 03 442 0172 (Cotter Ave) or 03 442 1416 (Durham St) or email.
