About Us and Our Programme

Petone kindergarten is situated in a 1980s  purpose built centre in Tennyson Street, Petone.  


We provide an environment where children and their family/whānau are welcomed and respected. Children and adults will find the kindergarten to be a safe, caring community where they can belong and participate and have a ‘place to stand’ or turangawaewae.


We trust children’s competence and provide an environment that embraces children’s mana and holistic learning by respecting temperaments, dispositions, learning styles, abilities and interests. Children are supported to develop a strong sense of self determination, and to have ownership of their choice of play and learning. Together we discover that learning is fun.



Monday - Friday: 8:30am to 2:30pm 



We offer free play sessions where the focus is on following the children’s interests.



Term 1 Tuesday 23 January - Friday 13 April   Term 2 Monday 30 April - Friday 6 July

Term 3 Monday 23 July - Friday 28 September   Term 4 Monday 15 October - Friday 21 December
