About Us and Our Programme
At Lansdowne Kindergarten we emphasise fun. We promote care and respect for each other and our environment. We offer inclusive, accessible education to diverse learners and respect all religious beliefs. Children are involved in the flower and vegetable gardens, planting, caring for plants, and harvesting.
Our teachers foster children's wellbeing and interests through partnerships with parents and whānau. Literacy and numeracy are woven through the curriculum.
We promote New Zealand's bi-cultural heritage and visit our local Marae.
We have a special relationship with Kandahar Rest Home. We also have a close connection with Pukaha Mount Bruce, where we have an adopted kiwi and sponsor a hectare.
