Una Williams Kindergarten

Working with you

Our programmes focus on providing experiences that will develop your child based on their interests and experiences.  Our teachers welcome the chance to talk with you about your child - and appreciate what you can share with them about your child's life outside kindergarten.

Being involved

We enjoy having families/whānau visiting our kindergarten - you are very welcome to stay during our sessions.  You may like to become involved as one of our parent helpers, or share a skill with the children.  Practical help with cleaning up, taking home washing, donating resources or joining in on working bees is much appreciated.  Please just talk with one of our teachers about how you can be involved. 

Quality at kindergarten

At all our kindergartens the teaching team will provide  your child with a high quality learning experience.  Our team of Senior Teachers provides regular professional support to the teaching team as part of our quality approach .  Our kindergartens are regularly reviewed by the Education Review Office (ERO).  You can read the latest ERO report for this kindergarten here.

Una Williams Kindergarten

Una Williams Kindergarten is situated on the east side of Masterton and serves a diverse community.

We acknowledge and respect our dual heritage and are committed to a responsive and reciprocal partnership with parents/whanau.

We believe each child is unique and special.  We are committed to promoting a safe, positive, caring environment which provides for a sense of wonder and fun, where everyone is valued, and where play enhances social skills and self-esteem. 

We have a strong commitment to Te reo and Tikanga Māori which we integrate naturally into our daily programme.

We believe in a child centred programme where teachers actively extend and support children, inviting them to explore, investigate and discover a world that has meaning for them.

Our Teaching Team

We have five teachers fully qualified in early childhood education (ECE) and are ably supported by an administrator.
