Kia ora and welcome to Roskill South Kindergarten

Welcome to Roskill South Kindergarten!  We are proud of the strong connections that we have within the local community. The practices that we use within our kindergarten are research-based to develop your children as confident and competent learners.

Read the excellent review from ERO in their most recent evaluation of Roskill South Kindergarten.

At Roskill South Kindergarten, we run an outdoor programme called “Bush Kindergarten” described as a class-room without walls, where children learn about the natural world and opportunities for risk and challenge are promoted.

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.
