Welcome to Bulls Kindergarten

Kia ora welcome to Bulls Kindergarten, a community-orientated kindergarten that supports and provides children with opportunities to meaningfully grow into life-long confident and competent learners.

We are a Bronze Enviroschool promoting sustainability-for-life learning, with inclusive engagement and contributions from all in our community welcomed.  Aspects of literacy and numeracy, drama, music and dance, and art, are all woven meaningfully throughout the curriculum, and we very much support child-directed engagement where there is a focus on social competency and wellbeing. We support an environment that values the knowledge children and whanau bring with them, and underpinning our local curriculum is our commitment to biculturally responsive practices.

We look forward to your inquiry and meeting you, your child and your whanau.
