Grandparents and Friends

Parkland Kindergarten


Grandparents and Special Friends Days were held at Parkland Kindergarten 28 and 29 May, providing an opportunity for grandparents, friends and whānau to spend time engaging with children and teachers.

It was an amazing experience to see so many Parkland Kindergarten whānau sharing precious time immersing themselves in the childrens' learning and the fun that occurs at kindergarten.

Located on the Parkland School grounds, the kindergarten highly values relationships with both families and the wider community and days like these link closely to the kindergarten's relationship philosophies.

Family involvement is promoted through a warm, inviting environment, where parents/whānau are encouraged to be involved in their children's learning and contribute to programmes such as wider community exploration through excursions, visitors and social events.
