We are a three teacher kindergarten, and operate a school day model with 6 hour sessions Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 2.30pm, and an after hours session until 4.00pm for up to 6 children. Fees apply for after hours at $4.00 per hour or part thereof. WINZ subsidies may apply.
Our kindergarten has a strong commitment to sustainable living practices and a wonderful spacious outdoor environment for active learning. The heart of our curriculum is building relationships and identities that will grow rich resourceful people. Based on Te Whaariki and our bi-cultural society of Aotearoa New Zealand, we believe it is important to promote the qualities and dispositions of: empathy, integrity, respect, tolerance, courage and resilience which are all relevant for sustainable life in the 21st century.
In 2015 Anne West Kindergarten became an Enviroschools kindergarten and we joined a nation-wide group of schools and early childhood centres who are all committed to a kaupapa of creating a healthy, peaceful, sustainable world. To us this means living in a country where people work with positive energy to connect with each other, their cultural identity and their land, and to create a healthier, peaceful, more equitable society.
Anne West Kindergarten has achieved Enviroschools Bronze.
