Kia ora and welcome to Bucklands Beach Kindergarten

The environment is important to us at Bucklands Beach Kindergarten. We take special pride in our outdoor area. This features a native garden rich in plant life, and a child friendly climbing/construction area where children can freely play and explore.

Teachers at Bucklands Beach Kindergarten focus on building and sustaining positive relationships with children and their families.

Here at Bucklands Beach Kindergarten, teachers encourage meaningful conversation with children to help them become skilled communicators.

Our kindergartens have early childhood qualified and registered teachers.  The teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education.  Each kindergarten has a head teacher plus teachers and support staff.  Quality learning programmes are based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.
