Welcome to Manchester Kindergarten

Welcome to Manchester Kindergarten, a warm and positive environment, where people matter and quality relationships are paramount.

Teachers passionately guide a holistic curriculum that focuses on children’s play and learning how to interact and cooperate with others. We support children's interests and develop knowledge, skills and dispositions to ensure they will be successful, lifelong learners.

Children are encouraged to be physically active in our upgraded outdoor learning environment, learn to take care of the environment, be creative and motivated and have their transition to school well supported.

Whanau can engage with their child’s on-line learning portfolio, which includes photos, videos and narratives, and strengthen the conversations about their child through sharing stories from home and feedback. We look forward to embarking on a journey into learning with you and your child.
