Our Favourite 2016 ERO Comment:

The kindergarten's carefully planned and well-resourced environment enhances the learning programme. Children are supported to engage in activities in which they become explorers, risk-takers and nurturers.
Children's interests and individual needs underpin the kindergarten curriculum. Teachers use deliberate strategies to extend individual interests and address identified needs. Children enjoy learning through play. They relate respectfully and positively with each other and adults. Teachers and children know each other well. Parents and whānau contribute their knowledge to promote children's learning. Children are well supported to self-manage and lead their own learning.
The broad curriculum reflects the kindergarten's commitment to Māori ways of knowing, doing and being. Literacy, maths and science development are emphasised. An intentional focus on wellbeing includes healthy food and physical activity.

" The experience I had was very helpful - the ladies were able to help both me and my child to separate.  It gives us both independence and my son has made wonderful friends and is learning a lot from the other children.  The atmosphere is relaxing - there is a nice feeling about the kindergarten".  Teresa
