The indoor area at Lynfield Kindergarten is set up to encourage children to discover and learn.  Our professionally qualified teaching team work alongside children to develop their unique strengths and interests.

Lynfield Kindergarten is inclusive – we embrace cultural diversity.

Our learning philosophy

For the past 110 years, the Auckland Kindergarten Association has been igniting young minds by encouraging them to explore their imaginations through play. For many of us, kindergarten was where we began our life of learning; it was where we started learning skills like sharing, tolerance, patience, respect and self-confidence.

We view children as capable, competent, life-long learners, and our philosophy encourages children to make their own learning choices, problem-solve and observe and explore at their own pace…with support from teachers, parents, wider whānau and their peers. We value the importance of child-initiated, play-based experiences. Our kindergarten teachers nurture your children’s interests and natural curiosity by working alongside them, expanding language and introducing mathematical and science concepts, as well as literacy, digital technology and sustainable practices.

Our centres have gardens and natural outdoor spaces where children can create, explore, be imaginative and expressive. There’s plenty of room to safely run about, being imaginative and physically active. In fact, the natural world is essential to free-range play. AKA encourages each kindergarten community to explore and enrich their diversity and uniqueness. Some have regular excursions into the local community; some are Enviroschool kindergartens that live and breathe sustainable practices; while others engage in long-term research on child interest-based programmes of learning.

As an organisation, we formally acknowledge the dual heritage of Aotearoa / New Zealand, and work to uphold the spirit and intent of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in each kindergarten. We are accessible, secular and welcoming to the wide diversity of tamariki and whānau who attend our centres, and value ongoing partnerships between teaching teams and leadership staff with families and whānau. We value ongoing learning for teachers, parents and whānau, and the sharing of knowledge, skills and attributes is fundamental to achieving the best learning outcomes for children. Teachers and staff can access collegial professional time to ensure that quality practice is enhanced so current theories of learning and development within New Zealand’s world-class Te Whāriki early childhood curriculum are shared and understood.

Children learn

Children in our kindergartens have the opportunity to:

  • Feel confident, develop responsibility and a sense of independence
  • Play meaningfully alongside other children and adults
  • Develop effective communication skills
  • Persevere, problem-solve and take risks
  • Explore limits, boundaries, routines and conflict resolution strategies
  • Practice fine motor skills such as threading, writing, cutting and grasping
  • Develop gross motor play such as physical games like climbing, throwing, kicking, balancing and lifting
  • Develop creative expressions through painting, music, collage, movement, dance, finger-painting, drawing, cutting, pasting and story sharing
  • Develop early numeracy, literacy and science skills
  • Learn techniques through trial and error
  • Explore the world through experimenting, questioning and curiosity
  • Develop confidence and celebrate both attempts and successes
  • Develop a passion for learning and a love of life
  • Have fun!

Older children will be supported in their transition to school to make this process as simple and seamless as possible. Book a visit here on Kindello today, we’d love to meet you.

Rising Stars Lynfield Early Childhood Centre

We, at Rising Stars, believe that early childhood lays the foundation for future learning and development and that childhood experiences and memories greatly influence a person's life.

We believe that a child is a competent and unique individual with talents, potentials, and capabilities who deserves our utmost care and respect. Thus our dedicated and professional team of teachers endeavour to discover and draw out the giftedness of each child entrusted to us by:

  • Designing programmes that cater to and extend on the children’s individual needs and interests;
  • Preparing an environment that is safe, stimulating, and challenging, and where children can play, explore and develop at their own pace;
  • Facilitating learning experiences that provide a balance between free-play and guided child-initiated activities.

We are convinced that children feel a sense of belonging and their self-esteem is promoted in an environment where ongoing and harmonious parent-teacher partnership exists and where their cultural heritage is recognised and valued. Hence parents, as well as whānau aspirations for their children, are constantly considered, and their contributions to the programme are regularly sought and appreciated. Furthermore, we acknowledge and respect the cultural heritage of both partners to the Treaty of Waitangi by promoting Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori in our daily programme of activities and in special celebrations, in addition to the cultures of our Rising Stars family.
