Kia ora and welcome to Farm Cove Kindergarten

At Farm Cove Kindergarten our vision is to create a community of learners in an environment of care and respect. Our environment is unique and provokes creativity, sustainability and inspirational thinking.

Our outdoor area is natural and allows children opportunities to explore the environment, climb, run and use their imagination

Literacy, numeracy and science concepts are appropriately and purposefully integrated throughout the programme at Farm Cove Kindergarten.

Farm Cove Kindergarten is situated next to Wakaaranga Primary School.  We are involved with the junior department of Wakaranga and visit the school for special events.

We also have children going on to other schools in the area.  Sunnyhills Primary, St Marks, Pigeon Mt Primary, Elm Park Primary.

Farm Cove kindergarten has four fully early childhood qualified and registered teachers.  Our kaiako/teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about Early Childhood Education, and to the wellbeing, and education of the tamariki/children.  Our quality learning programme is based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.
