The high vaulted ceiling at Boulcott Kindergarten gives a sense of space that teachers Susan, Krysia, Michelle, Deborah and administrator Jane say they, along with the children, all enjoy. The team also love being outside experiencing the natural environment with the children - playing in the sandpit, putting up tents, ‘camping’, and utilising the stage for impromptu performances.


Our teachers strongly believe in child-led play, and providing them with a tranquil place to build friendships and discover the world. They work hard to earn the trust of the children by being fair and role-modelling good social skills.


Working as a team with children, parents, caregivers and families is something our teachers really enjoy. The couches in the family corner provide whanau with a place to chat, make friends and watch their children play.

Our Philosophy

At Boulcott Kindergarten we nurture a sense of respect and belonging.

Play is authentic and is familiar in context to the children, and this is reflected in our programmes.

The heart of Boulcott Kindergarten radiates around reciprocal relationships with children, parents/whanau and teachers – forming a community of learners.
