Additional Benefits

Parents love the rich sense of community at Woodend Preschool, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. We absolutely love coming together with our tamariki, whānau and community to strengthen our relationships with one another.

At Woodend Preschool, we love to celebrate! Whether it be a national week, cultural celebration, a calendar date or a themed dress up day. Some of the events on our annual calendar include Chinese New Year, Language Weeks, Matariki – Maori New Year, Red Heart Day, Plastic Free July, Recycling Week, and Sign Language Week.

Asset 150

Excursions

Our children enjoy walks where they can get out and explore locally. We are fortunate the centre is a short walk from local parks and playgrounds. Other places our kaiako and children love to visit include Woodend School and the local shops. We often have our local community join us in Centre for visits and to enhance our children’s knowledge about people, places, things and events.

Portfolios & Storypark

We use an awesome app called Storypark, which allows whānau to follow their child’s early learning journey and to ensure you don’t miss out on important centre communications.

Photos, videos and audio capture your child’s learning so you never miss a treasured moment again. You and your family can also feel more engaged in your child’s development, and you decide who you would like to invite to experience your childs learning journey with you. A perfect way to share those special moments with loved ones down the line or overseas.

Although we love to use Storypark as an online platform to communicate with parents, we also use paper portfolios for each child.

Children enjoy finding their paper portfolio and reflecting on their past activities at the centre. It is a fantastic way for children to engage in self-recognition and reflect on their personal development, as well as being a treasured keepsake for their 21st Birthday!
