Keeping Kindy Safe
For more than 100 years, kindergarten has been a safe place for tamariki to learn, explore, and make friends, and our commitment to that is unwavering.
We keep our spaces Kindy Safe because tamariki learn and grow best when they have the freedom and room to explore, play, and connect freely, no matter what is going on in the world around them.
Being Kindy Safe means paying attention to the fundamentals, which is why strong leadership and management, and rigorous systems, processes and policies underpin everything we do at Kidsfirst. These are the bedrock that our kindergartens are built on, and we take them very seriously.
Whether it’s a pandemic wave, day-to-day kindergarten life, an excursion, or an event, our kaiako will have the safety of your tamariki top of mind – and that provides the sort of peace of mind that is needed for growth, learning, connections, and fun to happen.
Whether you’re exploring kindergarten to see if it is right for your whānau, just starting your kindy journey, or have been with us for a while don’t hesitate to talk with kaiako about any health and safety related concerns. And remember, our safe spaces are there for whānau, too.
