Kia ora and welcome to Sylvia Park Kindergarten

Sylvia Park Kindergarten is a warm, welcoming and magical place that encourages tamariki to explore, foster imagination and to have fun!

Our kindergarten celebrates the blend of multiple cultures of our children and their whãnau, a space that welcomes whanau (family) involvement and community connections. Our kindergarten has a variety of resources to support children’s learning such as a woodworks station, arts and craft, outdoor play and imaginative play spaces.

Sylvia Park Kindergarten’s dedicated and qualified kaiako (teachers) are passionate about providing high quality learning programmes that support our tamariki to foster a passion for lifelong learning.

  • A big THANK YOU to all of you here at Sylvia Park Kindy.  You are amazing.  Thank you for making my “Sam Sam” very happy and excited everyday for almost 2 years being a Kindy Kid.  We are very grateful for all the efforts you do to make everyday a fun filled experience for our little ones.

    Love from Balbona Family

  • Wow what a ride….Briyanna has learnt so many skills, which will set her up for life. During her kindy days she has made so many great friends and told us lots of stories of day to day kindy life, we are going to miss these dearly. Briyanna has gone from a quiet reserved girl to a strong willed, very independent, confident, sassy girl all thanks to you. These last few months she has loved her time as the “AKO Teacher”, perhaps she may even come back in the future years as a teacher herself.
