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.
