Balmoral Kindergarten

At Central Kids Balmoral children and their families are warmly welcomed into an inclusive high-quality learning environment. Relationships among teachers and children are respectful, close and trusting. We work in partnership with parents and whānau and involve them in decision making. The concepts of manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, kaitiakitanga are embedded in our practice contributing to children and whānau having a strong sense of belonging to the kindergarten.

Children’s language, culture and identity are celebrated here at Balmoral Kindergarten. We seek ways to maintain children’s connections to their cultural identity. Partnerships with whānau lead to reciprocal information sharing about culture, needs, interests and home experiences, which are interwoven into learning experiences. Children are proud to share their culture and often contribute to the learning of their peers through the sharing of waiata and cultural practices. All children benefit from these experiences and Māori children are well supported to experience success as Māori.

Through research and our own extensive experience, we strongly believe in an organised environment with routines, but one where children are able to make choices, think independently and develop their own sense of judgement and decision making.

We welcome you to visit our kindergarten anytime.
