We work with various groups to strengthen our offerings and provide the best outcomes for your whānau.
Enviroschools is a nationwide programme. We have select kindergartens taking part in this programme who are committed to a long-term sustainability journey, where children/tamariki connect with and explore the environment, then plan, design and take action in their local places in collaboration with their communities. The journey of connecting with the place and its people is designed and led by each individual kindergarten.
Each kindergarten start their journey and as they embed themselves with sustainable practices, reach a new status including Bronze, Silver and Green-Gold.
Incredible Years is a positive behaviour for learning programme for both parents and teachers/kaiako of children/tamariki between 3 and 8 years old. The programme addresses how to cope with challenging behaviours of children/tamariki and how you can increase their social and self-control skills.
The teacher/kaiako programme gives teachers/kaiako strategies on changing disruptive behavious around and create a more positive environment. The parent programme develops strategies on managing problem behaviour and building more positive relationships with their children/tamariki.
The Auckland Kindergarten Association welcomes teachers to our workshops. For information on programme dates and enrolment please get in touch with us by email at IYTeachers@aka.org.nz.
Storypark is a digital portfolio which documents and supports your child’s learning together with your teachers/kaiako. With Storypark, you can record and communicate learning as it happens via photos, video, audio and observations within a secure online environment. All our kindergartens are using Storypark to support, engage and communicate with our whānau.
The Healthy Heart Award has three different levels and works like a bronze, silver, gold system. Our kindergartens reach each level by promoting healthy eating and physical activity in their daily plans. This programme is resourced by the Heart Foundation.
