About us

At Conifer Grove Kindergarten we invite you and your whānau (family) to experience an environment that welcomes individuality and promotes lifelong learning.  It is a fun and educational place where children can meet and make friends while they explore and experience new and exciting challenges. A place in which parents and whānau are welcome to spend time with their children. We provide a quality well-resourced kindergarten where all full time teaching staff are qualified, and environment where children have the opportunity to make their own choices, and are affirmed as capable and independent learners.

We believe that through developing a close and respectful relationship with our families we are able to work together in developing aspirations for our children.  By noticing, recognising, responding and documenting children’s strength and interests we are able to provide meaningful learning experiences.  While in our care your child will:

  • Be treated with dignity and respect
  • Learn to develop positive relationships with children, adults and the environment.
  • Have their cultural and spiritual beliefs respected and affirmed by all.
  • Experiment with a range of equipment and resources.

At Conifer Grove Kindergarten we use responsive planning to support and respond to children’s interest/needs, as this enables both the children and teachers to plan for their learning interests.  We use both our indoor and outdoor environment to support the children to meet the challenges their interests may present to them along the way.
