Tamariki and whānau are welcome to visit us anytime.
Tamariki and whānau (family) are at the heart of what we do and our whanaungatanga (relationships) strengthens their sense of belonging. We have a culture of manaakitanga (kindness) and aroha (love) we fill our tamariki emotional and social kete which fosters meaningful play.
“Whāia te mātauranga hei oranga
“Poipoia te kakano kia puawai.”
Bridge Street Kindergarten provides for tamariki from
6 months to 6 yearsof age in two separate spaces.
Kaiako will ensure that your tamaiti and your whānau have one to two 'go too' kaiako to build that trusting relationship with. This is to build up their mana, and learn about the essence of them/their mauri. Showing manaakitanga is an important part of our philosophy and plays a role ensuring that tamaiti are fully settled and happy. Once they are ready to explore, kaiako will support tamaiti to make connections with the rest of our Bridge Street whānau.
“Naku te rourou nau te rourou
Te ruma Pākeke Over 2's
In the Pākeke room your tamaiti will have a key kaiako, who will document their learning journey in their portfolio, and will also take the lead during your tāmariki visits prior to starting and the settling in period when they start.
