Kia ora and welcome to Sandringham Kindergarten

Welcome to Sandringham Kindergarten.  Our kindergarten is an attractive, inspiring environment that supports young learners.

Here at Sandringham Kindergarten we focus on inquiry-based practices to encourage and inspire children to discover the world around them, and lay the foundations for the essential skills of life.

Sandringham Kindergarten has strong community-based relationships.  Everyone is welcome – we invite you to meet our teaching team and experience our kindergarten in action!

Our kindergartens have early childhood qualified and registered teachers who speak a range of languages.  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 Whāriki.

From the ERO Reports…

  • Programme planning is based on children’s ideas and interests. Assessment portfolios are a valued record of children's learning journey. These records celebrate each child’s successes, progress and cultural identity.
