An Individual Plan for each child at Avondale Christian Kindergarten


Here at Avondale Christian Kindergarten we believe that children learn best when care and education go hand in hand. We also acknowledge the important role of parents as first teachers.


All children are unique and develop at different rates, with their own God-given gifts and interests. As a team, together with parents, we make an individual plan for each child’s learning, based on their interests. Into this plan, we incorporate the learning that we value here at Avondale Christian Kindergarten.

Learning that we value

  • Developing social skills

  • Developing self-help skills

  • Developing ’other mindedness’, being mindful and considerate of others and the environment

  • Developing communication skills

  • Taking responsibility for our own learning and behaviour

  • Developing a sense of tuakana teina, of being both the learner and the teacher
