About Us and Our Programme

We have three services working together on the one site, giving options to parents.   

 

Our two kindergarten groups Kura Tamaiti and Kura Pepe  operate a long day session and a shorter session. Our playgroup (Isola), which arose out of a community need for a playgroup to support parents with younger children  operates on four mornings. 

 

With our different services and our close relationship with the school next door, we operate as one learning community. All whānau are welcome across all services.   

 

 We are a nut free kindergarten.

 

Our teachers are all 100% qualified and registered.  Some of our recently graduated teachers are provisionally registered and working towards full registration, supported by their colleagues.

We plan our programme to follow and build on the interests of our children.  At our staff meetings we discuss how to use our environment to extend children’s learning. 

 

We take part in the Island Bay festival annually.  We have a kuia who takes us for kapa haka and we also have a great working relationship with Island Bay School next door.  Our children visit the school as they transition to school.  We also take part with the school in buddy reading and Jump Jam.
