About Us and Our ProgrammeWe are the oldest kindergarten in Porirua, located in multicultural Cannons Creek, and we have a strong relationship with our community.
Children bring their own food, however we do provide breakfast each morning, as well as fruit at morning tea time. We also do baking and cooking with children during sessions. We are a peanut-free kindergarten.
Our ‘transition to school’ programme includes visiting the new entrant class at Windley School each week as children near 5 years old. We create transitions booklets about each child for their new entrant teacher. We use the Casey the Caterpillar literacy programme which is also used at Windley School, and provides children with literacy knowledge for starting school.
