Pickering Street Kindergarten celebrates each child’s unique and individual learning journey.
Session TimesKindergarten Monday – Friday 8.30 – 2.30
Pickering Street kindergarten is located next to Waikirikiri School. We welcome input from our whanau and community and have links to the school.
We are guided by three core values: Manaakitanga (caring for others and surroundings): Whakawhanaungatanga (building and maintaining relationships) and Rangatiratanga (self-management, leadership and persistence).
Through these values our learning programme focuses on supporting and extending four critical areas of learning:
- Whakamana – develop and display a positive self-worth
- Ngā Hononga – initiate, build and maintain relationships
- Mana Reo – communicate effectively for a range of purposes
- Mana Aoturoa – develop the skills and attitudes to be active, engaged learners
We are a professional teaching team headed by Donny Manuel (Head Teacher), with Gina Braybrook-Carter (Teacher) and Tania Keelan (Teacher) assisted by teacher aide Jess Lamont and Kaiawhina Marisa Neho.
