We have had one child transition through the kindergarten from to age of 4 years old to Year 1 and were extremely happy with the Transition to School program and the effort put into the school readiness and preparation of the children. We currently have a 4 year old in the kindergarten and again are extremely happy with the care, the guidance and the development effort that is being given to him. He is in a good position going forward to continue his school preparation and readiness under the guidance of excellent teachers.

Both of our children have been lucky enough to go to Kristin Kindergarten and we consider it an outstanding early childhood education centre, extending the children in a caring, safe environment with exceptional staff and small class sizes. The team of staff have a true passion for early education, instilling a real love of learning in the children and providing continuous feedback to parents. We were very sad to see our children leave the kindergarten but knew they left fully prepared for school, both academically and socially.

We have been lucky enough to have two of our three children go through Kristin Kindergarten, the third is due to start later this year. Kristin Kindergarten is an amazing place, it is relatively small and kids are able to develop friendships that will last them the remainder of their 14 years at Kristin. Kristin Kindergarten has very dedicated nurturing teachers and fantastic resources. The kids learn in a fun supportive environment. The transition to school programme is second to none. Our kids went through to the junior school fully equipped and ready to face the challenges of school, not only able to read and write but already exposed to mandarin, Maori, PE and other specialist subjects. A fantastic foundation to their schooling. We would recommend Kristin and Kristin Kindergarten to anyone looking for a quality education for their children.
