Mill Crescent Kindergarten

At Central Kids Mill Crescent children enjoy a large outdoor playground, with bikes, water play area, grass area, climbing boxes, slides, swings, mudpit, whare taakaro, and a big sandpit with a water feature. Our spacious outdoor area allows children to lose themselves in their play, to challenge themselves, to take risks and gain confidence.

We also have an interactive bird aviary, turtle/fish tank and worm farm which provides opportunities for children to learn about and how to care for a range of birds and animals. We encourage children to be curious and kind with all living things.

Our beautiful gardens include trees, native plants and a vegetable garden, as we well as herbs, flowers and fruit. We are part of the Enviroschools programme, currently working towards our bronze reflection.

Central Kids Mill Crescent is inclusive of all ages from 2 years to 6 years of age, and as such we have facilities for nappy changing and assisting children with their transition from nappies to using the toilet. We set up beds for those children that need to rest or sleep, and offer every child the opportunity to choose their own key teacher to help them settle into kindergarten life.

We have special programmes such as weekly gymnastics and yoga classes and we go on regular walking excursions, including the primary school once a term. We enjoy celebrating Waitangi Day, Matariki, Rainbow Day and Christmas as family events each year, putting on special days throughout the year which link to our children’s current interests.
