Welcome to Pioneers
Castle Kids Pioneers is a unique, vibrant Centre with a focus of preparing children for school working in conjunction with the local schools and using the Bible as their foundation.
Totally dedicated, caring teachers, stimulate and grow these young enquiring minds with learning through fun and excitement. We love modern technology and this is an extra tool through which we extend learning.
The team cares, loves hugs, and provides such a welcome for all, that parents love to hang around for a while and be part of what is happening. Celebrations, special guest and links to the wider world add an extra dimension to the day and the children get really involved with their parents/whenua, by adding news, photos and Facebook feedback. The outside area, huge sandpit and vegie gardens gives and encourages experiences for exploration, risk taking and creativity, as well as an area to “let off steam” Walks and trips into the community add a link to what is happening around us.
Pioneers are on a bicultural journey, learning alongside each other, using our families’ knowledge and heritage to help us grow. This is an ongoing process and teachers have had support and encouragement from the whanau at Ngati Toa to pass onto the children.
We are one family working, loving and learning under one roof.
