Kia ora and welcome to Chelsea Kindergarten

Chelsea Kindergarten has strong relationships with the local community and school networks, fostering friendships and a smooth transition to school.

We are proud of our sustainability focus and have achieved Silver Enviroschool status.   We are passionate gardeners and recycle all sorts of materials for our creative projects.

We have recently had new lino and carpet laid and have purchased new furniture and resources.

We are a multicultural kindergarten where parents contribute through sharing their cultures and customs.

We are seriously committed to creating a fun learning environment.

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.

From the ERO Reports…

  • The programme is calm, settled and predominantly child-led. Teachers’ skilful and sensitive interactions effectively support children’s engagement in the programme.
