Ruahine Kindergartens

Welcome to Linton Kindergarten

Our wealth of resources and supportive teaching team allows children to take responsibility for their own learning and follow their interests to become confident, competent learners.

Creativity is encouraged and celebrated. Concepts of science, numeracy and literacy are integrated throughout spontaneous and planned kindergarten activities allowing children to learn in meaningful ways. They are also involved in planting, cultivating and harvesting crops in our kindergarten gardens, where we create our own compost.

We provide a supportive environment for many parents, particularly during times of deployment, when sole parenting can be a challenge for army families. We look forward to getting to know you and your child as we learn together.
