Children show a positive sense of belonging and are actively involved in looking after others and the environment. Their wellbeing is fostered by caring and respectful kaiako.

Ode to Greenmeadows Kindergarten:
Was almost 5 years ago when off to Kindergarten we did go, Amelia first and then came Lu. What a great start for our precious two!
Alison provided a listening ear for stories and tales of our family. Teresa brought Patrick which filled us with glee. Jo's green fingers inspired us all and digging in the garden was a ball. A joke from Sarndra, a song from Marie, Rachelle's hugs are legendary!
For Amelia the craft table was where it was at and singing songs and dancing on the mat.
Lucia was loved all there is to do, such motivating activities provided by you.
From building to painting, sandpit and baking. What a treat to have teachers so neat!
So thank you all for all you've done to prepare our children for the world out there. It'll be hard to say goodbye without shedding a tear. With love Anna, James, Amelia and Lucia (August 2013)
Thank you awesome Greenmeadows Kindergarten teaching team. James has had such a positive, fun and learning time at Greenmeadows Kindy. I especially thank you all for your genuine caring and enthusiasm and for the numerous ways you have contributed to our family over the pre-school years of the 3 O'C boys! You are all wonderful!
