About Us and Our Programme
We believe in fostering a love of learning in an inclusive environment. We value kindness, respect, confidence, leadership and enthusiasm. We also value family, community and reciprocal relationships.
The children at Discovery understand they and their whānau are important to us. We develop relationships with whānau to support achieving aspirations for their children. We want children to grow up to be self-motivated, caring and life-long learners.
We are a well-resourced kindergarten and we provide equipment to foster learning in all curriculum areas. We have a close relationship with Discovery School and have regular visits. We also have links to our other surrounding schools.
Our curriculum is based on the children’s interests. The teaching team works hard to identify interests, and support them by providing resources and engaging children in conversation to extend their learning and to deepen understanding. Our planning wall reflects this development.
