About Us

Oaktree Kindergarten is situated in Browns Bay which feeds into the variety of the local primary schools. We are a public Kindergarten with a fully qualified teaching team that offers a high quality educational programme for 3-5 year olds. At Oaktree Kindergarten we have an open door policy and welcome families/whānau to visit anytime. Relationships are central to our learning environment with both children and their whānau. It is our goals for children once they leave for school to be confident, competent, life-long learners that are willing to embrace their next learning journey.

At Oaktree Kindergarten our practice is underpinned by the founding principles of Te Whāriki, the Early Childhood Curriculum along with Enviroschool’s principles and education for sustainability. Within our community we are well known for the high quality service we provide along with our strong community approach. We provide a welcoming inclusive approach to all and embrace diversity and culture.

We provide a beautiful, joyful and stimulating environment that nurtures and empowers children. We do this through a play-based curriculum that provides opportunities for discovery, wonder, exploration and interaction. Our outdoor area is admired for its size, layout, natural aspects and the physical challenges if offers children. Our whole environment reflects the uniqueness of Aotearoa New Zealand representing our bicultural curriculum that values and encompasses our multicultural community.
