About Us and Our Programme

At Karori kindergarten, at the foot of Wrights Hill, we nurture kaitiakitanga - an appreciation of and care for the natural world. We have bushy spaces, gardens, compost, a worm farm and we recycle all our waste. Environmental sustainability is important to us.

 

Manaakitanga (hospitality, generosity and kindness) is emphasised - parents and siblings are warmly welcomed and we encourage and enjoy whānau involvement. We regularly come together to celebrate occasions such as Matariki, when we hold a midwinter feast. We also hold a wheelathon and a Christmas party.

 

Independence and self-help skills are encouraged. Children make sandwiches at our “Karori Cafe” table for morning tea, which also includes fruit and popcorn.

 

 

SESSION TIMES

 

Monday - Friday: 8:30am - 2:30pm

 

 

Our programme is based on Te Whāriki, the New Zealand curriculum for early childhood education. The programme adapts and evolves to meet  the needs, strengths and interests of individual children and the group.

 

Children’s interests and ideas are encouraged and fostered by a team of passionate, experienced teachers who believe in high quality early education. All hold degrees and several have post graduate qualifications.
