We create beautiful learning spaces for children, using natural resources, to create inspiring places of learning. As an Enviroschool, we are deeply committed to sustainable practices and provide many learning opportunities for our children to: develop leadership skills, connect with nature, minimise waste and care for our environment.
We provide a range of meaningful literacy and numeracy experiences and have a strong transition to school programme. Children's interests are followed and we incorporate the skills needed to be a successful, life-long learner. Authentic, purposeful and real life experiences such as baking, gardening, building and regular excursions/special events are all part of learning at Roslyn Kindergarten.
Relationships are at the core of our programme and we take the time to get to know you and your child. We invite you to pop in and visit us during session time to see our programme in action.

"Real positive environment for children"
"Oh that's the real cool kindergarten"
"The kindergarten is very important to us because it allows our child to interact and express herself in the absence of close family back in the UK."
"Our child has experienced a caring, curious, secure environment."
We hosted a World Refugee day to celebrate the many refugee families that make up our kindergarten whanau. Parents came in to share skills in drumming and singing (from Nepal) and for dance and helping us with simple phrases (from Bhutan and Nepal). Children had the opportunity to dress in (not quite) traditional clothing using a large box of fabrics to make up head wear and clothing.Read More...
