You’re interested in visiting and seeing if we are the right place to nurture and educate your child through early childhood? We see this as an important time, and encourage you to give us a call; 07 378 8042 or use the contact form on our website to make a time to visit and connect with us. This way we can dedicate the time that this deserves, and not be distracted by other tasks or have too many visitors at the same time.
When you visit us at Four Seasons, we’ll show you around and ask that you set aside about an hour so that we can share our philosophy with you and you’ll see what this looks like in action. We’ll share the rhythm of our days, and share how we build connections with you and your child. You’re welcome to take away an enrollment form and come back to enlist your child onto our waiting list. There is never any obligation and we love sharing our space and day with whanau.
Currently we have a waiting list and the length of time that it may take for your child to begin with us will depend of their age and the space available in the kindergarten. We can chat about this when you visit.
When a space comes available, we get in touch and begin the process of transitioning into kindergarten. Usually 3-5 visits are scheduled where whanau join their child and spend about an hour with us, being in our space, sharing in part of our day. One of our kaiako will connect with you and begin getting to know you all a little deeper.
For a child at the beginning of their time with us, there is the option for attending the shorter day, of 8.30am-12.30pm for the first month. After this our enrollment moves to the longer day of 8.30am-2.30pm and we have a minimum enrollment of 3 days a week. To discuss your individual needs and hopes for your child, please be in touch.
