Hello and Kia ora to you from Casa Nova Kindergarten
Casa Nova Kindergarten is located at the North End of Oamaru in a fun, friendly and spacious environment. Our location supports our uniquely diverse nga tamariki and whānau to embrace their own identities and that of others. We enjoy getting to know everyone involved in our community and take the time to develop partnerships with all. We are lucky to boundary Pembroke School and enjoy shared opportunities for learning with them. We offer a range of options within our sessions with some full time spaces available. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday is generally for our four and five year old akonga and Wednesday and Fridays for our two and three years olds. Providing meals four days a week free of charge supports our nga tamariki to be exposed to a wide range of kai options that promotes a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Kaiako support our nga tamariki and whānau by building upon values of Manaakitanga (respect), Ngā Hononga (relationships), Turangawaewae (inclusion) and Māia Whatumanawa Pāpori (social and emotional competence). We love getting involved with the wider community and enjoy many excursions out and about, celebrating where we live and the opportunities within. The living world is alive in our place our gardens, rabbit Bluebell and our three heihei (chickens) a big part of our learning. We pride ourselves on the challenges we offer our tamariki and really enjoy supporting them to build upon their skills in practical and collaborative ways. Problem solving, risk taking, communication, relationships, collaboration and friendliness part of our way of being.
