At Paremata Kindergarten we are fortunate to be on the beach front and have a lovely natural outdoor environment for the children to play in. We place special importance on creating a welcoming environment and on building and nurturing relationships with our children, families and whānau.
Paremata Kindergarten operates a free play programme and provides a range of opportunities for children to learn, gain knowledge, dispositions and skills and of course have fun. Children can explore the inside and outside learning environments and choose areas of interest to them. We have weekly kapa haka (Māori waiata and dance), and weekly library time where the children can choose one of our books to take home to read, before returning to our ‘library return box’.
