About Us and Our Programme

At Ascot Park we encourage our whānau to be part of our programme in whatever way they can to support the children’s learning. We encourage family groupings, so siblings and cousins can attend together. We encourage participation of children and their whanau with special learning needs, and will work alongside other agencies to support and encourage full participation.


We celebrate past pupils returning to our Kindergarten with their children, and value the strong connections we have with many of our families.

We have close ties with our local schools especially Rangikura School, and Aotea College. We value the many ways we work within our community supporting each other, including weekly transition to school visits, school gardening initiatives, sharing visiting plays or puppet shows, the Gateway Programme for secondary students, and termly Year 11 visits.  We support the many Early Childhood training providers especially Whitiriea, by providing placement opportunities for student trainees.


We provide a programme based around Te Whaariki, our national early childhood curriculum.  We notice children’s interests, and develop play-based opportunities to extend and foster their learning. This happens individually or in group learning situations. These exciting journeys are captured in stories in their profile books which record the ongoing learning during their time at Kindergarten.




Monday to Friday:  8:30am - 2:30pm

We encourage whanau to talk to us about the days and hours they need, and we try our best to help.



Our team are all fully qualified and we have many years of experience between us.


Our journeys into teaching have been varied with some of us entering teaching straight from school, while others have raised their own families before entering the profession. We are all committed to providing high quality education for your child, and celebrating your children’s achievements alongside you.


We have a facebook page – please like us on facebook to keep up with our News.
