At Nelson South Kindergarten we are passionate about quality early childhood education with relationships at the core of our practice.
All the teachers here are fully qualified and registered teachers and have been teaching here together for many years.
The team actively respects and incorporates the knowledge and experiences that all children bring to life at our Kindergarten.
Our programme is enriched through our ability to notice and recognise children’s emerging ideas and interests, and to extend these through the provision of resources to excite, prompt, promote, provoke and extend children’s ideas, skills, knowledge and reasoning.
We make constant connections with our wider community as groups of children and teachers head out most weeks on excursions to a wide range of places such as; Nelson Intermediate Gymnasium, the Grampians, Nelson Provincial Museum, Isel Park, Nelson Public Library, local Primary Schools only to name a few.
We are fortunate to be part of a very multicultural community, with children and their families from around the world as well as Aotearoa/New Zealand.
We have a transition to school group made up of the eldest ten children which help children further develop skills and knowledge in the last few months of their time at Kindergarten.
We have termly optional family events and an open door policy to allow families to visit whenever and be part of their child’s learning and development and also meet other families.
Feel free to pop in to visit us anytime with your child or contact us if you want to know more or to enrol your child(ren).
