About Us and Our Programme

Our kindergarten in the Martinborough School grounds is surrounded by farmland and vineyards.  We are part of the school community and our close relationship helps children transition to school easily.


We value the bicultural heritage of New Zealand and reflect this in our teaching. We use Te Reo Maori and tikanga Maori in our daily routines and 'mat time' to support values of l respect and unity (kotahitanga)


We encourage sustainability and respect for the natural environment and resources. We have our own vegetable gardens and worm farm.


We work in partnership with children and families/whānau, school and community to create a shared, welcoming environment.





Monday to Friday:  8:30am - 2:30pm

We promote independence and confidence. Our well-resourced learning environment challenges children’s problem solving and creative abilities. We encourage children to be involved in challenging and stimulating learning experiences which strengthen their problem solving and creative abilities.


We promote physical activity, such as athletics, Jump Jam, gymnastics and Rippa Rugby.


We explore technology, researching new ideas to keep up to date.
