Kia ora and welcome to St Heliers Kindergarten

St Heliers Kindergarten is a fun loving, safe and challenging environment. Our beautiful outdoor environment allows for both space and quiet areas that promote better learning outcomes for children. The indoor environment is clean, spacious and inspiring, reflecting the cultures of our community. We have a strong focus on the child’s emerging curriculum and this is supported through Te Whåriki, NZ ECE Curriculum. Please pop in and visit, have a look around and meet the staff and teachers.

Our teachers are early childhood qualified and registered, dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education.  The head teacher plus teachers are supported by an Administrator and Teaching Assistant and a Teacher Aid. We are dedicated to ongoing learning and improvement.
