Welcome to Lumsden Kindergarten

We're Hiring

Where our little people learn big things.

Lumsden provides an exceptional standard of early childhood education and care for tamariki from birth to five years in a fun, dynamic and nurturing environment.

Our fully trained team of specialist teachers work together to support our children’s learning at their own pace, foster their well-being, open their minds to early literacy and numeracy applications, and guide them to play together in safe and supportive ways. The curriculum focuses on four main areas:

  • Literacy & numeracy
  • Languages & countries of the world
  • Art experiences, including music and theatre
  • Outdoor experiences, including active movement, gardening and sustainability

As well as offering planned learning opportunities, tamariki have plenty of time to play, explore the outdoors and discover for themselves, all while making friends, building relationships and having lots of fun.

We are super appreciative of all the work the whole team at Lumsden have done for Jasmin and have nothing but nice things to say about each and every one of you. We would highly recommend Lumsden to anyone who'll listen!

I am particularly impressed with the wonderful teaching and learning that occurs in the art room and also the teaching of different languages to the children. ... I have nothing but praise for this kindergarten.
