Welcome to Eskview Kindergarten
Eskview Kindergarten (located in the Bay View township) encompasses both local and rural surrounding districts and operates within a peaceful, positive environment which supports and stimulates children’s curiosity, wonder and awe in the world around them.
Our kindergarten acknowledges the importance of fostering warm, reciprocal relationships, both with the children and their families, and the vibrant local community. Our strong links between the community, families and the kindergartens are maintained though our regular community events, events which really highlight the notion as this is a place of belonging – this is our place.
We welcome interested families to visit us here at Eskview Kindergarten.
We provide a colourful and creative learning environment; rich in opportunities for children to be curious and stimulated within a harmonious atmosphere. We promote a respectful kindergarten, reflective of and embracing the local community and environment, which acknowledges the dual heritages of Aotearoa New Zealand.
Learners for Life
Our Favourite 2016 ERO Comment:
Children learn in a positive, supportive environment that reflects the kindergarten's philosophy and semi-rural environment. Teachers know children and their families very well. Friendships amongst children and having fun as part of the learning process are highly evident. Parents regularly share their knowledge and skills to promote children's learning.
A broad curriculum reflects the kindergarten's commitment to the arts and physical activity. Early literacy, mathematics and science development is meaningfully integrated into learning contexts. Children lead their own learning and are highly engaged in cooperative and sustained play. They are encouraged to use their imagination and be creative. Natural resources are valued and children have the freedom to explore nature.
