Welcome to Mairtown Kindergarten

We would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief outline of our kindergarten.

  • Through a negotiated curriculum our programme provides your child with the maximum opportunities for their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development during their time with us.
  • We provide meaningful opportunities for your child to learn through play in the company of other children whilst under the guidance of qualified teachers.
  • Our assessment is guided by our New Zealand curriculum, Te Whāriki, as well as been supported by many different educational philosophies, theories and research.
  • At Mairtown Kindergarten we believe that our relationships with children should be based on respect and affection. By providing support and warmth, children feel free to ‘grow’ in an environment which promotes their health and nurtures their well-being.
  • Children learn and develop best when they are extended in this way by teachers who are responsive and who share with the child an understanding of the world.
  • As a teaching team we value the importance of children’s play and encourage our children to have fun in developing meaningful learning experiences.
  • We have a wonderful blog that highlights the children’s learning and involvement at Mairtown and is a wonderful way to view some of the experiences that we offer at our kindergarten.
