Nga mihi nui kia koutou katoa.He tino nui kei konei
Ko te whanau tangata.
Nau mai haere mai, Dobro dosli,
Welcome to our fabulous community of learners at Anne West kindergarten. The tamariki and whanau of Muriwhenua have been a part of this kindergarten for over 65 years. We have a proud, rich history of providing quality early childhood education for this community and we celebrate this opportunity to share this with you.
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.
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.
We welcome your participation.
