Kia Ora and Welcome to our Kindergarten

We believe in providing children with the necessary tools, skills and attitudes to enable them to become competent, confident, responsible and capable learners throughout their life long journey.

Kohikohia nga kakano, whakaritea te parekereke, kia puawai nga hua. Gather the seeds, prepare the seedbed carefully, and you will be gifted with an abundance of food.

Our Philosophy

We are committed to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi – partnership, protection and participation, and reflect the dual heritage of Aotearoa through our programmes, documentation and practices. We acknowledge Te Whariki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum. It guides and inspires us as teachers.

Our Teachers will

  • Empower kids to make decisions and strive to become independent
  • Encourage and challenge kids to become problem solvers and investigators, to learn about themselves and take ownership of self-learning
  • Value self initiated investigations, experimentation and creative expression
  • Embrace technology practices that assist learning quests
  • Treasure unique gifts, curiosities, passions and potential
  • Make time to listen, respect views and celebrate cultural heritage and identity
  • Value the funds of knowledge that families and whanau bring the kindergarten setting and join them in partnerships that helps kids to learn and grow to their full potential
  • Be committed and passionate in regard to their own professional growth and development as an important part of ensuring a high standard of teaching
  • Develop an environment where sustainable practices and thinking is an integral part of the curriculum in developing lifelong learning skills, knowledge and understanding
