|About Us and Our Programme |
Haere mai, welcome to Newtown Kindergarten. We offer your family a wonderful warm learning experience. Our established kindergarten is just off Adelaide Road near the hospital. It is large and light with a spacious outdoor area.
We provide activities such as gardening, composting, tree-climbing, swinging, and sand and water play. We also have a physical challenge course and an amazing fort.
Inside, we have areas for quiet activities such as reading and puzzles, and a small room for family and dramatic play. We have spaces for exploring literacy, numeracy, construction, and music and movement, and a range of art experiences.
Our early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki is bicultural, and we weave aspects of Te Ao Māori and Te Reo Māori (the Māori world view and the Māori language) into our programme.
