A strong belief in the richness of multi-culturalism guides Liz, Nicole, Tania, Renee, Teacher Support Nathaniel, and Adminstrator Anita. Our children represent many different countries and cultures, with families warmly encouraged to visit and share their language, art and food with everyone.

 

Our children love the outside playscape, with Maori carvings, room for trolley races, and lots of little forts and houses for pretend play. They learn about sustainability through recycling, the worm farm, our great vege garden and mini orchard.

 

The teachers and children love our interactive whiteboard. It is used for activities ranging from numeracy, literacy and problem solving, through to using video and music clips to support the children’s interests. Our teachers also use it to display information for parents.


Our Vision

(This is our "wawata" - our dream or aspiration for our kindergarten)

To provide an environment that is safe, inviting, rewarding and accessible for all children to use, giving education learning experiences which offer children opportunities to make decisions based on their interests and needs…


Our Philosophy

At Moera kindergarten…

We believe in providing an environment that is safe, inviting, rewarding and accessible for all children to use.

 

We enjoy a sense of fun and humour while playing with the children.

We strongly believe in providing a sense of well-being and belonging for children and their families.

 

We believe in open, effective communication between staff, children, families and the wider community.

 

We believe the language and symbols of each child’s culture is promoted and protected, reflecting the cultural diversity of the community.

 

We believe in learning experiences which offer children opportunities to make decisions based upon their interests and needs.

 

We believe in developing our knowledge and skills so we can be the best teachers we can be.

 

We value Te Whaariki (our early childhood curriculum) and the outcomes it provides for the children and their families.

 

We recognise the Treaty of Waitangi as part of our history, and it is important to share our knowledge with the children and their families.
