Manu Crescent Private Kindergarten is a well-established centre that operates with a small group size of 20 children and 100% registered teachers.

Kaiako (teachers) skilfully promote and extend children’s learning and development through a programme that clearly emphasises the value of play and child-initiated learning. Literacy and numeracy learning, strongly embedded within the context of children’s play, is an integral part of their daily experiences.


Manu Crescent Private Kindergarten’s Philosophy

To provide quality teaching interactions within a small group size with fully qualified kaiako/teachers.

 Atawhai, Whakapono, Kaha, Whakaute – Kindness, Trust, Courage & Respect

Our learning community believes that the well-being of children is paramount.  When children feel manaakitanga; safe, confident and valued within whanaungatanga they are empowered to learn.  We look at children’s learning and development holistically, through the provision of a stable nurturing environment that is reflective of the cultures within it.

We provide an environment that invites a child to question and experiment.
