Kia ora and welcome to Westmere Kindergarten

    Welcome to Westmere Kindergarten!  The outdoor area at Westmere Kindergarten provides opportunities for physical challenges and discovery for children.  Our gardens enable children to learn about nature and sustainability.

    Inside the kindergarten there are areas for children to learn through play and to explore and develop their own interests.

    Westmere Kindergarten fosters strong links to the local school and the wider community.

    All of our teachers are university trained and are registered. They enjoy creating a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere for our community. We have many years of combined teaching experience and expertise that makes our team strong and effective. We specialize in learning through play and the teachers weave literacy, numeracy and science learning throughout the daily programme.

    From the ERO Reports…

    • Children play well together and are actively engaged in their learning. Children are independent learners and make choices for their play.

    • Partnerships with parents and their contributions to the programme are valued. The kindergarten continues to have a very active parent committee, which organises and leads fundraising and kindergarten events.
