Monday to Friday.
Our teaching team
Our beautiful kiwi big backyard has lots of natural shade from established trees, with challenges and endless opportunities for curiosity and exploration. Green grass, barked areas, native plantings, edible gardens, and equipment specially designed to support children’s physical growth and development are features in our playground.
Kidsfirst Kindergartens Beckenham is a well-resourced kindergarten for children aged from 2 - school age - spacious, welcoming, attractive and child-centred, with lots of opportunities to try new things, inspire curiosity and develop creativity through play. It's an atmosphere full of fun that gives our tamariki independence and sense of belonging.
You're always welcome here, and we encourage family/ whānau to visit and take part in their child’s kindergarten day, sharing your skills and culture too. We value the relationships we build with our whānau/families, making new connections and embracing the multiculturalism and diversity of our community. Our families, past and present, are an important part of our kindergarten life. We also understand the pressures on parents and whānau, so you can be involved whenever it suits you.
Our kindergarten is involved in the Community of Learners cluster group in South Christchurch, building relationships with other schools and early learning centres to better provide the foundations for life-long learning for your child.
We would recommend that you enrol initially for at least three sessions, building up at your child's pace. This gives our teachers time to get to know your child and gives some consistency around supporting their learning. .
Nau mai, Tauti mai - come in and see us any time, we’ll make you welcome!
