South Otago Kindergartens
Learning For Life
We strongly believe that learning through play is learning for life. The latest
research shows that early learning and care is essential to brain development in our young children, so we are guided along these lines to provide the best opportunities for your children in a nurturing environment. We view children as learners and they learn best through play which is a vital way for children to explore different ways of doing things and learn important lessons from their own hands on experience. With the guidance of our trained teachers the experiences provided promote and extend on your child's knowledge and skills so that they can always achieve!
We welcome families into our environments seeing this as an opportunity for our
children to grow and get a better understanding of the importance of culture and community.
We aim for children to become confident as independent learners giving them the opportunities to challenge themselves, problem solve, explore using their own natural curiosity, develop self help skills and risk taking in a caring, nurturing environment.
Our environments are rich in natural resources with space for children to run. They can interact with the environment and often are able to explore our community through walks and participation in community projects. We have great resources to extend the children's thinking with endless opportunities for learning.
Come and join our Kindergarten family where your child will develop skills and opportunities to embark on their life journey where learning will happen naturally as they enjoy what they are doing.
