Welcome to Bulls Kindergarten

Kia ora welcome to Bulls Kindergarten, a community-orientated kindergarten providing children with the resources and support to become confident, competent lifelong learners.

Our environment offers plenty of space for children to play, learn and explore indoors and out. Our vegetable garden encourages healthy practices.

Concepts of literacy and numeracy are incorporated into planned and spontaneous activities, and we also engage imaginations through drama, music and dance. Our value system, developed in partnership with the community, is entrenched in our kindergarten culture.
