Esk Valley Kindergarten Brochure

Curriculum Priorities

• Esk Valley is a lovely wee rural kindergarten where play is recognised as being the optimum learning environment for tamariki/children.

• We aim to develop an environment where natural resources, sustainability and creativity are woven through our curriculum design.

• We value strong links with our close community and aim to support and enhance these relationships.

• Our vision is to create a culture of respect, generosity and care for others.

Teaching Team

We have fully qualified and registered teachers. The Team is also supported by a Teacher Aide.

For me, the absolute delight of working with tamariki is seeing the world through their eyes – each and every day is filled with curiosity, wonder and more importantly the fun and joy of learning.   – Cheryl (Head Teacher)

The St Andrew Children Centre run a Playgroup on a Tuesday morning.
