We offer a child-centred programme driven by children's strengths, interests, creativity and knowledge. Each child is encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and their actions, respecting their environment and the people in it.
Our experienced and enthusiastic teachers welcome parents, whanau and members of the wider community to participate and share their knowledge.
Electronic portfolios of children's learning are shared with whanau and children are encouraged to incorporate concepts of literacy, numeracy and science into their everyday kindergarten activities, making learning meaningful and relevant to them. We look forward to meeting you and your child as we journey into learning together.

Sponsorship forms were sent home for families to ask their extended family, friends and neighbours to make a donation towards this worthy cause. Whanau were also offered the opportunity for their child to print their feet on tee-shirts as another means of raising money.Read More...
