Our Kindergarten in Trentham in Upper Hutt has been part of the community for over 40 years. During this time we have developed close relationships with local schools and our community.
We are a welcoming, diverse, friendly and well-resourced kindergarten. We provide high quality teaching and learning interactions which build and extend on children’s thinking and learning. We offer a spacious outdoor area where children have the opportunity to explore and engage in physical challenges.
Our centre has a strong focus on providing an environment that promotes and nurtures the health and emotional well-being of all children. We do this by using a social competence programme called ‘Playing as a Good Friend’. Children are also encouraged to develop knowledge about keeping themselves healthy through our Healthy Heart programme.
Sustainability is also a key feature in our kindergarten as children are empowered to learn about creating sustainable communities through the Enviro-schools programme..
