About Us and Our Programme
Our kindergarten is the only early childhood centre in Seatoun, situated next to Seatoun School. We have a strong relationship with the school including transition programmes.
We have an inclusive open door policy and provide opportunities to meet the needs of the community. We work in partnership with whānau to meet individual needs by providing opportunities for sibling placements, and flexible days and sessions.
Our teaching team maintains and promotes positive relationships with children that respect their individuality, culture and place within the kindergarten community. We take time to listen and work alongside each child at their level of understanding.
At Seatoun we provide a welcoming environment and are committed to having a place where everyone feels they can belong. We have set morning tea and lunch times, which supports children with food allergies.
We celebrate, respect and support the cultural needs of our community. We do this through celebrations and by inviting community groups to share their cultures with us.
