About Us and Our Programme

At Ascot Park we are big on family! We encourage 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 also welcome participation of children with special learning needs and their whānau, and work with other agencies to foster and enable full participation.


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


At Ascot Park Kindergarten we embrace and follow the children’s lead – offering the security of warm empathetic support as we look for opportunities to ‘stretch’ their thinking, promote language development, foster their developing social competence, and nurture adventurous spirits who know what makes their heart sing!




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 is 100% qualified, and we have many years of diverse experience between us. Our journeys into teaching at Ascot Park have been varied, and we are committed to providing high quality education for the tamariki of Ascot Park, and celebrating their achievements with you.


We have a Facebook page – please like us on Facebook to keep up with our news.
