|ABOVE: Joy, Helen (Head Teacher), Ata, Lesley, Manami and Mary About Us and Our Programme |
Waitangirua Kindergarten is a multicultural community of learners. Many of our families come from Maori, Pasifika and Asian backgrounds.
We have five teachers as well as a cultural aide and a language extension teacher who works with the teaching team to build on children’s language, cultural knowledge and identity.
Building strong, positive and culturally-sensitive relationships with families /whānau/community is important in creating a learning environment that caters for all children. Having fun with our children is a must and there are always humorous moments to share and laugh about, so if you want some ‘happy time’ or just want to visit then feel free to do so.
