Kia ora and welcome to Sunnyvale Kindergarten

A recent Education Review Office review for Sunnyvale Kindergarten highlighted that, “children settle quickly and confidently in the kindergarten’s rich and stimulating learning environment, which encourages and supports children’s play.”

With the support of Sunnyvale Kindergarten’s dedicated and qualified teachers, children have many opportunities to explore literacy, numeracy and technology in their play.

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.

Sunnyvale Kindergarten has a passionate, dedicated, professional teaching team.  We are a well estabilished team who work together to form good relationships with whanau and tamariki.  Teachers strengths are used to promote creativity, language, physical confidence, music and self-help skills.

From the ERO Reports…

  • Children's learning is deliberately encouraged. Teachers are respectful and responsive in their interactions with children, listening well and asking questions that help to extend children's ideas particularly during mat time.
