Kia ora and welcome to Green Bay Kindergarten

At Green Bay Kindergarten we provide outdoor play areas that are inviting and interactive, with natural areas for children to play and explore.

Throughout Green Bay Kindergarten, our programme is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy – with an enriching, respectful environment underpinning the development and extension of children’s learning and interests.

Green Bay Kindergarten’s qualified teaching team value the importance of strong links with their whanau, and the local community, where everyone is welcome.

Our teachers are all qualified early childhood teachers, and all hold full registration.  The teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education.  Green Bay Kindergarten’s teaching team consists of teachers and support staff who are professional and passionate about providing a high quality learning environment.  Quality learning programmes are based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.

From the ERO Reports…

  • Teachers respond effectively to what they observe about children. They work alongside children engaging them in conversation, valuing their contributions and asking questions that promote their curiosity and thinking.
