Kia ora and welcome to Birkenhead Kindergarten

A recent Education Review Office report for Birkenhead Kindergarten highlighted that, “caring and positive relationships are a feature of the kindergarten.”

At Birkenhead Kindergarten, we promote bilingualism and celebrate our multicultural community through music and art.

Birkenhead Kindergarten’s qualified and professional teaching team work with children to encourage their sense of curiosity and desire to explore.  Furthermore, early numeracy and literacy are fostered through socio-dramatic play and games.

Our kindergartens have early childhood qualified and registered teachers, who regularly take part in ongoing professional development.  The teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education.  Birkenhead kindergarten has a head teacher, three teachers and support staff.  Quality learning programmes are based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.

From the ERO Reports…
