Kia ora and welcome to Hillsborough Kindergarten

Welcome to Hillsborough Kindergarten!  We have recently had a new building upgrade – come and meet our teaching team and see the modern learning facilities that we offer to your children.

Here at Hillsborough Kindergarten we promote inclusive practices.  This means that everyone is welcome and diversity is embraced.

We partner with Hay Park School to support a smooth transition into school.

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…

  • Parents are well informed about their children’s participation and learning through assessment portfolios, extensive wall displays and digital technology.
