Kia ora and welcome to Kauri Park Kindergarten

Welcome to Kauri Park Kindergarten.  We are situated in Birkdale and pride ourselves on our spacious and natural outdoor environment.

We are committed to providing an environment that supports inquiry and play based learning. We use learner identities as a lens to see each child’s individuality within a diverse community.

We would like to invite you to come and visit anytime and see our programme in action.

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 richly resourced kindergarten environment provides a wide range of opportunities for children to engage in play.

  • Teachers' relationships with whānau are well established and parents' contributions to the programme are valued. The welcoming atmosphere supports parents to linger and children to develop a sense of wellbeing and belonging in the kindergarten environment.
