Tips & Strategies for Tamariki and Whānau returning to Kindergarten

It will be wonderful to have our kindergarten communities back together. This will look a little different for whānau when you return, but the kaiako are well prepared to ensure a happy and safe return for you all. Here are some tips and strategies you may like to keep in mind if you or your tamariki are feeling a little anxious returning to kindergarten.

Lawn and Garden Contracting

We have 23 kindergartens throughout Southland that require lawns to be mowed, gardens to be kept tidy and some general tasks related to the upkeep of buildings.

As the current contract we have for this work is due to expire, we are now inviting expressions of interest to quote for this work.

Distance Learning

Kia ora whānau. Some of our whānau are choosing to continue distance learning during COVID-19 Alert Level 2 and we are committed to ensuring there continues to be distance learning experiences shared from Kindergartens South. At the start of each week you will find some learning experience ideas you can enjoy at home here on the Kindergartens South website.
