Conifer Grove Kindergarten

At Conifer Grove Kindergarten we invite you and your whānau (family) to experience an environment that welcomes individuality and promotes lifelong learning. 

It is a fun and educational place where children can meet and make friends while they explore and experience new and exciting challenges. A place in which parents and whānau are welcome to spend time with their children. 

We provide a quality well-resourced kindergarten where all full time teaching staff are qualified, and environment where children have the opportunity to make their own choices, and are affirmed as capable and independent learners. We believe that through developing a close and respectful relationship with our families we are able to work together in developing aspirations for our children. By noticing, recognising, responding and documenting children’s strength and interests we are able to provide meaningful learning experiences. 

While in our care your child will: 

  • Be treated with dignity and respect Learn to develop positive relationships with children, adults and the environment. 
  • Have their cultural and spiritual beliefs respected and affirmed by all. 
  • Experiment with a range of equipment and resources. 
At Conifer Grove Kindergarten we use responsive planning to support and respond to children’s interest/needs, as this enables both the children and teachers to plan for their learning interests. We use both our indoor and outdoor environment to support the children to meet the challenges their interests may present to them along the way.

Lollipops Takanini

Just over the fence from Conifer Grove School is Lollipops Takanini, a warm and welcoming early childhood centre offering top quality care and education. A home away from home for local children, our beautifully designed, purpose built centre is a hub of inspiration and activity. Staffed by a passionate team of dedicated teachers, we support children to grow into happy, confident, competent and capable learners.

Our Philosophy

Here at ­­­Lollipops Takanini we believe that each child is unique / he ahurei te tamaiti and has a combination of abilities.

We strive to provide an environment where all children’s cultures are respected, celebrated and they can develop to their full potential as unique individuals who are confident in their sense of belonging. Our cultural values are underpinned and influenced by our understanding of tikanga and the Treaty of Waitangi.

It is our aim to provide the foundations of a developmentally appropriate Early Childhood Education programme which is underpinned by the principles and strands of Te Whariki.

We are dedicated to ensuring that parent/whanau involvement is encouraged in all decision making, in particular, guidance when seeking goals and aspirations for their children. It is our aspiration to ensure that these relationships are respectful, reciprocal and responsive. Therefore, we are committed to creating a meaningful learning community for our children and their families.

We strive to consistently promote a holistic approach to the health and wellbeing of all children and their families. This is achieved through developing strong relationships with each other as a team, with children their families and the wider community. Our aim is to give children the tools and confidence to become competent and confident lifelong learners by viewing learning as fun and exciting in a safe and secure environment.
