kiwi Room

Our Kiwi room caters for children from approximately 3½ to 5 years old.

We understand that preschoolers are learning to make sense of the world. They are developing early literacy, numeracy and social skills and discovering who they are. We provide a more complex learning environment for both individual and group experiences.

Our preschool environment aspires to set our children up for success as they prepare for their new adventure within the primary school sector, whilst providing a nurturing calm environment that provokes our tamariki’s imagination through play. 

During their time in our preshool classroom your child will be scaffolded to develop respect for themselves, others and the environment.

Preschool Room Philosophy

Our vision is for children to have a strong sense of belief in themselves and to be supported in their aspirations and dreams as individuals.  We place high value on children having the freedom to explore, allowing them the time they need to express themselves, to laugh, to have fun and for all children to be inquisitive, competent and open-minded in their learning journey.

We value whanau input and contribution. Relationships are an integral part of our room. We display open, honest, professional and friendly communication with our children, their whanau and each other.  We encourage all children to develop as independent, confident learners, who are supported and extended by a team of dedicated teachers who are committed to high quality care and education.
