Welcome to Pakuranga Baptist Kindergarten
“Believe in me, and I will believe in myself”
“Childhood is about playing, discovery, and believing in dreams. The imagination and possibilities are endless”
Why Choose Our Kindy?
We provide a beautiful, well-organised kindergarten environment, where nurturing teachers guide children to make their own discoveries. We’re passionate about developing children’s love and respect for the environment, so we run unique Outdoor Explorers sessions and participate in the Enviroschools programme.
Meet Our Teachers
Our teachers are nurturing, friendly, and passionate about encouraging children’s learning. They are also well qualified: more than 80% have at least one teaching qualification, whereas the Ministry of Education requires only 50% of ECE teachers to be formally qualified.
What We Get Up To
Each day our children create, play and discover in our inspiring kindergarten environment. We offer a range of activities to appeal to our mixed-age sessions, incorporating natural materials and outdoor experiences as much as possible.
About Our Kindergarten
We are a community-based kindergarten offering full and half-day session for 2 to 5-year olds. Children’s early years are crucial to their lifelong development, so we understand that choosing a kindergarten for your child is an important decision. We believe in holistic education that encourages every child’s emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth.
Our highly qualified teachers work with small groups of children to explore and build on ideas. “We encourage children’s natural curiosity and guide them to learn and discover more each day so they can become confident, resourceful, imaginative, life-long learners”.
We know how important it is for YOU to develop relationships with the people taking care of your little ones. We encourage whanau involvement with parent teacher evenings, regular newsletters, and fun family events.
Our mixed-age centre provides a place of connection and collaboration, allowing our younger children to be inspired and challenged by the older children, while our older ones learn to share their skills and take responsibility for others.
