the joy of teaching, the love of learning

Carlyle Kindergarten

 

Welcome To Carlyle Kindergarten

At Carlyle Kindergarten we celebrate Napier’s history with a focus on 21st Century learning. We incorporate the ‘Virtues Project’ into our daily lives and we are dedicated to keeping up to date with current theories and practice. We have highlighted literacy as an area of interest in a recent ICT Research project. Children’s interests are our interests.

We have a lush, vibrant outdoor environment that is often admired and ever changing. Teachers and children welcome interested families. Our kindergarten becomes 'tent city' when we host an overnight sleepover for parents and children.

 

Our Session Times Are:
Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 2:30pm



Our Staff To Child Ratio:
We have a ratio of 1 teacher to 10 children, with additional non teaching support as well.

The philosophy of the kindergarten is reflected in the positive social and cooperative relationships between children and adults, and learning evident in the centre’s programme.  At Carlyle Kindergarten we -
Foster friendships

Our Favourite 2016 ERO Comment:
The kindergarten's philosophy is clearly evident in practice. There is an emphasis on building positive relationships and children forming friendships. Children are enthusiastic and show curiosity and confidence in how they learn through sustained cooperative play. They enjoy learning about healthy food and caring for the environment through sustainable practices.
 
A strong focus on supporting literacy, mathematics and testing theories is evident. Children are actively encouraged to communicate and develop their oral language skills. They appreciate the natural world and being able to follow their emerging interests.

Testimonial:

"Carlyle Kindergarten has provided both my daughter Olivia and my son Thomas with an amazing start to their education. From the moment you walk in the gate you feel welcome and part of the caring and nurturing atmosphere. The staff are enthusiastic, dedicated and passionate about the learning opportunities they provide and most importantly the children they teach. They are very approachable and always had time to discuss the progress of my child and any concerns I had. The programme they offer is motivating, engaging and challenging. It caters for the wide range of children that attend and is always evolving around the children's interests and inquiry. During the sessions the children are taught values which are important in preparing them for being a part of the world. These are modeled through the staff's actions and words everyday. Carlyle Kindergarten has been part of a technology contract so the staff are highly skilled in this area and the children are able to work with the most up to date technology to create movies and e books.   Olivia and Thomas have had so many opportunities which has seen them grow in confidence and the skills they needed to be ready for school. Most of all my children have loved going to Carlyle Kindergarten. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into my children!! Leigh Golding, parent, March 2010.
