Mill Crescent Kindergarten

Mill Crescent Kindergarten

At Central Kids Mill Crescent children enjoy a large outdoor playground, with a central grass area. We also have loose parts, water play, climbing boxes, swings, a slide, 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 have an interactive bird aviary, a 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 extensive grounds include trees, native plants and a vegetable garden, as well as herbs, flowers and fruit. We are part of the Enviroschools programme, and have recently achieved our bronze certificate. This all links with the value we place on te ao Māori, and respect for Papatūānuku.

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. The cornerstone of our philosophy is relationships, and this allows each child to form a secure attachment with their key teacher.

We do regular walking excursions to Firth Primary School, and we are able to do spontaneous walks into the college next door to enjoy the large grass area with the surrounding trees. We are also able to watch all the trains coming going past daily through our back fence bordering the college.
