About Us and Our ProgrammeAt Lansdowne Kindergarten children learn to value, acknowledge, respect and care for themselves, others and the environment. Children are involved in planting, caring for and harvesting in the vegetable and flower gardens.


Through teachers' important partnerships with parents, caregivers and extended whānau we foster children's wellbeing and interests. Literacy and numeracy are woven through the curriculum and feature highly in our planning and children’s learning outcomes.


We acknowledge and promote New Zealand's bi-cultural heritage. We visit our local Marae annually, we have a special relationship with the elderly at Kandahar Rest Home and have a close connection

with Pukaha Mount Bruce, where we have an adopted kiwi and sponsor a hectare.


A private website for online assessment (Storypark) allows family near and far to view and comment on their child’s learning stories. The online community post provides updates on news, events and reminders, keeping our families well informed.



Monday to Friday: 8.30am - 2.30pm



We hold an annual bike-a-thon in the first term as a social fundraising event for our families. We visit the elderly residents at Kandahar Rest Home once a term to sing songs and chat with them and they visit us as well.


Te Rangimarie Marae welcomes us once a year for a powhiri and the tamariki sing waiata. We embrace and celebrate many cultural and community events such as St Patrick’s day, Matariki, Easter and Christmas. We also visit Pukaha Mt Bruce once a year as part of our programme.
