Kia ora and welcome to Glenfield Kindergarten

Glenfield Kindergarten participated as part of the Inclusion Project 2015.  This project focuses on the changing social, cultural and learning needs of children with the aim of making kindergarten accessible for everyone.

At Glenfield Kindergarten we have a strong sustainability focus and have achieved Silver Enviroschool status.  We use natural and recycled resources in our programmes wherever possible.

Glenfield Kindergarten has strong links to the local community and school networks.

From the ERO Reports…

  • Teachers welcome parents and children and engage them in conversation to help them reconnect with the environment. These positive and sensitive relationships help families to feel a sense of belonging and children to have a sense of ownership of their kindergarten.

  • Teachers skillfully encourage children to think for themselves and at deeper levels. They empower children to make decisions in their play, to take appropriate risks and to solve problems.
