Rosebank Kindergarten

14 Naish St , Balclutha, Dunedin 03 418 2670


Rosebank Kindergarten is located at 14 Naish St, situated on the Rosebank Primary School grounds, where we offer the 6 hour School Day Option. Our Kindergarten caters for a semi-rural community with many families travelling to attend.

At Rosebank Kindergarten we view the child as a "learner". We provide a positive and supportive learning environment. Through this children
learn the skills, strategies and learning dispositions to become confident and independent. As teachers we provide many different opportunities to encourage and provoke curiosity and creativity for our 21st century learners.

Rosebank Kindergarten builds strong relationships that will ensure your child settles into Kindergarten with ease. We aim to provide meaningful transition for your child when starting school.

We are dedicated, 100% qualified and enthusiastic teachers who strive to ensure that parents feel comfortable, welcomed and are valued to contribute to their child's learning. Feel free to come and visit anytime.

Session Times              
Open – 8:45am – 2:45pm

     Rosebank Kindergarten is extremely excited to introduce our                                Forest Kindergarten Programme!
Our vision :

The aim of the Forest Kindergarten  programme is to provide children with the opportunity to get back into nature, allowing them time to explore and play in a local natural environment, with a sense of adventure. Teachers, parents, whanau, and DOC will work alongside each other to support children’s     learning and development in an       untouched, scenic reserve in the Catlins- Manuka Point. 
The benefits for our children:
Giving children time and opportunities to BE in nature.
Developing new relationships in small groups.
Developing a wide range of essential knowledge, skills and attitudes such as:
 - Risk taking, social skills,  physical skills, growth mind set by giving new and different experiences a go, knowing their limitations, investigating, experimenting and improvising using their imagination.
- Building their individual character and dispositions such as confidence, trust, rangatira traits and resilience. Learning bicultural perspectives.
- Time outdoors with the opportunity to look, listen, touch, smell and taste, where children learn to respect the natural environment.
 Learning about the local community and sustainability.
