Forest View Kindergarten

Forest View Kindergarten is situated on the outskirts of Tikipunga, close to Whangarei Falls and on the way to Glenbervie.

Forest View Kindergarten is set amongst beautiful native trees, with lots of gardens, including barrels of wonderful herbs, flowers and vegetables.  A large grass area is also part of our lovely outdoor space. You can hear Tui singing, see children exploring their natural environment searching for insects and dinosaur bones. Children and teachers are working alongside each other engaging in learning, researching ideas, investigating and asking questions.

You will see the children being independent learners.  We view children as being born with a sense of wonder and having a natural affinity for nature. You will see the children being active with lots of opportunity to run, climb trees, hit, kick and throw balls, blow bubbles, swing and jump; developing their important fundamental movement skills. You will see our children being creative and expressive through a variety of media such as dramatic play, storytelling, dancing, music, art and construction. You will see teachers and children gathering for mat-times; singing, storytelling, dancing and sharing stories and ideas.

It is within all of these experiences that teachers promote the literacy/language learning and the mathematical/scientific concepts.

We welcome parents, grandparents and whānau to share in the learning with their child.  We share our day with ‘friends’ on our Facebook page.  Every child has their own portfolio giving an insight to their learning journey.
