Project Description

WELCOME TO OUR CENTRE

Manukau Central kindergarten has been a part of our vibrant, diverse community since 1988. We are central to an established community, some of our children have parents who also attended as children. We have very strong links to Wiri Central School and the majority of our children transition to the school next door.

We place emphasis on establishing and maintaining strong relationships with children and parents/whanau. We welcome parent contributions to our children’s learning with parent help, sharing crafts and skills and shared lunches.

We regularly plan excursions aimed at providing opportunities for children and whanau to experience learning opportunities together, excursions are planned around children’s current learning interests and special events.

Our programme is highly responsive to children’s interests, we are well resourced and children lead their learning through play. Teachers assess learning outcomes with an emphasis on contribution, communication, belonging, well- being and exploration linked with curiosity, trust, perseverance, confidence and responsibility.

Literacy, numeracy and Te Reo are incorporated into most activities throughout the session daily.

Children bring a packed lunch and morning tea snack. We encourage children to bring fresh fruit to share for afternoon tea.

Outdoor play does involve water and sand play, teachers consider the weather conditions when planning these activities, we ask that all children carry a complete change of clothes in their bags daily so that we can keep your child warm and dry.

Our teaching team value our relationships with support services that provide assistance in maintaining our children’s health and wellbeing, they include  Plunket, Ministry of Health hearing and vision and Ministry of Education speech-language therapy.

We welcome your enquiry and recommend you visit us during a session, we are happy to discuss your child’s needs.

We are extremely proud and excited to announce that we have received a Rito Healthy Heart Award from the Heart Foundation for the amazing things we do to promote healthy food and physical activity. We are helping our tamariki to have healthy habits and healthy hearts for life
