About Us and Our Programme

Our Kindergarten is a community resource for our local families – and has been since 1963.  We have many children from Kelburn and Northland, with some coming from further afield to join us. You can see our native bush- based environs on our blog.


The environment is designed by the teaching team to be challenging, exciting and to provoke engaged involvement in exploration, experimentation, and developing social relationships.


Northland Kindergarten develops individual and group programmes for learners - ensuring that all children have equitable opportunities to be included and engaged in meaningful learning. We plan from the interests and the goals children set themselves.


We believe that a programme based on the notion of whakamana ( or facilitating empowerment) will ensure learning that connects to children’s selves. It will encourage them to contribute and develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills they bring with them to our programme.




Monday - Friday:  8.45am to 2.45pm





We deliver a programme based on developing children's learning journeys, offering children opportunities to get involved in different activities, including the expressive arts – music, art and drama. We have a strong belief in the value of developing language, literacy and numeracy.


Our Kindergarten has a strong emphasis on supporting children to be socially confident and competent. We use digital media as tools to support learning interests. .
