Welcome to our whānau!
Starting or raising a young family brings some of the most exhilarating - and challenging - times in our lives.
Change happens so fast, and so often.
Babies grow into crawlers, then suddenly you wake up one morning and they're cruising the coffee table. Before you know it, they're out the door and off to kindy, and just a handful of short years later, you're packing a school lunch...
There are so many places parents and whānau can find stories and ideas to support their journey, but getting practical, local, trustworthy information is not always easy.
Kindergarten is also unique in its outlook, its educational philosophy, and the things that we emphasise.
Our Whānau Connect pages are designed to provide you with a resource to complement your Kidsfirst experience.
Here, you'll find a mix of home grown wisdom, academic and developmental ideas that resonate with the kindergarten philosophy and draw on the decades of experience of our teaching teams, as well as experts in a variety of fields.
Ngā mihi from all the team at Kidsfirst
