Nayland Kindergarten is enhanced by beautifully carved entrance panels, which include the whakataukī:
Ka whāngaia, ka tipu, ka puāwai
Nurture it, and it will grow, then blossom.
This whakataukī links to our heritage pear tree in the playground. This pear tree is our taonga, our living treasure. It is a reminder of the commercial orchards that were once widespread in Nayland area and links the past to the present and future. It is also tangible representation of our philosophy of play-based learning.
Nayland Kindergarten is a unique place of learning, where tamariki, kaiako and whānau grow and learn together.
