About Us and Our Programme
Our kindergarten is housed in a converted villa near Johnsonville Railway Station and the Mall. We have a large outdoor area with beautiful trees and are fortunate that both our indoor and outdoor areas provide our children with plenty of space.
We offer places to children over two and provide morning, afternoon or full day options to meet different family needs. We are open for 49 weeks of the year.
We are a multicultural kindergarten with children from 19 different ethnic backgrounds. Our families practise a range of religions and speak many languages. We acknowledge the cultural mix which makes up our community and celebrate many cultural festivals. When our community comes together, it is usually around sharing food. We use our local community, taking short walks to the local fire station, police station and regularly attend story times and te reo sessions at the local library. We liaise with our local school community and support children to have a successful transition into school.
We are a warm and welcoming team, and we value partnerships with our families who are encouraged to visit and spend time talking to teachers, to develop a sense of belonging at Johnsonville Kindergarten.
