Welcome to Stanmore Bay Kindergarten

Stanmore Bay Kindergarten is proud to offer a fun, richly resourced, educational learning environment. Our fully qualified and registered teachers are fully committed to building learning power in your kindergarten aged child.

We are located next to Stanmore Bay Primary School in Waiora Road, Stanmore Bay.  The kindergarten was opened in 1979, and was the first public kindergarten on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.

Our Philosophy

Children learn through play. We aim to meet the individual needs of every child; physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. We believe by creating an environment that fosters curiosity and exploration children have the opportunity to actively engage with each other and the environment.

By creating an environment based on the childrens' interests we are ensuring there are opportunities for moments of wonder. Some learning is initiated by the child and at other times by the teaching staff.

We believe our role is to share the journey of wonder alongside each child. Working and researching together helps us to get to know the children on an individual basis. Parents have a font of knowledge to share with us regarding their child and we encourage family/whanau to share this with us and be a part of their child's learning journey.  Families are always welcome to come and spend time with us at kindergarten and share the kindergarten experience.
