Pickering Street Kindergarten

Pickering Street Kindergarten celebrates each child’s unique and individual learning journey.

Session Times

Monday – Thursday
8.30 – 2.30
Friday: 8.30 – 12.45

Pickering Street kindergarten is located next to Waikirikiri School. We welcome input from our whanau and community and have strong links to the school.

Our philosophy statement reflects the values and beliefs of the teaching team and community at Pickering Street kindergarten: ako (teaching and learning) experienced at kindergarten will strengthen mana (self- esteem, inner strength and identity) through manaakitanga (caring for others and surroundings), rangitiratanga (managing self, leadership skills and persistence) and whakawhanaungatanga (building and maintaining relationships).

Tamariki show confidence in their own abilities and see themselves as valued for who they are.

kaiako encourage and support children to confidently communicate their ideas and knowledge in an environment where caring (manaaki) and respect for others is nurtured.
We are a professional teaching team headed by Donny Manuel (Relieving Head Teacher), with Meredith Stewart (Teacher) and Grace Wilson (Relieving Teacher) assisted by teacher aide Jess Lamont and Kaiawhina Marisa Neho.
