Who are we?

Who are we?

Nayland Kindergarten is a place where teachers are energetic, fun and forward thinking and who provide a stimulating environment especially created for the early education of your child.

We are a teaching team of 5 teachers and 1 administrator.

We run an all day kindergarten model offering flexible placements  for 40 children.  We are open to discussing flexible placements to meet the needs of individual families. 

Where are we? 

Nayland Kindergarten is situated amongst a pod of schools - Nayland Primary, Broadgreen Intermediate and Nayland College, with whom we share resources, knowledge and shared learning experiences.

What do others have to say about us?

" The flexible and diverse programme provides contexts for children's learning. They are effectively supported to observe, investigate and explore. Children's interests form the basis of the programme, in which they take on the role of teachers to others less experienced. Te reo me nga tikanga Maori is effectively and sensitively integrated into experiences and routines. As a result children display high levels of motivation and engagement." (Education Review Office. March 2010)

Parent Feedback

" Excellent variety for all children - new and different challenges for each level of ability. Great opportunities for children to learn and understand technology in a safe controlled environment. "  

"I believe teachers are the number one important factor in any learning situation and at Nayland they are first class...passionate, attentive, dedicated, child-centered and lots of fun. We love how you build your programme round your children." 

"My child has become more confident and independent. The best transition from preschool to kindergarten to school."

"My child has gained confidence both physically and emotionally at kindergarten. She has learnt to have relationships with others and respect others. Nayland kindergarten has really helped her understand this."
