Great big fun at Mill Street

Mill Street Early Learning


With its very own flying fox, Drama Club and climbing dome, Mill Street Kindergarten offers a tremendous variety of playground activities and learning experiences for children.

Set on ¾ of an acre in Marton, Mill Street Kindergarten is one of the largest amongst the Ruahine Kindergarten Association with exciting developments such as the introduction of chickens, a mini-orchard and a new buddy reading programme with James Cook School conveniently located across
the street.

“These amazing resources give the children the chance to interact with one another on so many levels. They are having a blast developing those social and gross motor skills,” explains Head Teacher Kevin Lacey.

“We also have a strong focus on sustainability here with one of our learning spaces being a ‘growing room’ where vegetables are produced for kindergarten families to help themselves too.”

Working together with parents while supporting children with their learning journeys in a fun, caring, and safe environment are cornerstones of Mill Street Kindergarten’s philosophy.
