Howick Baptist Church Kindergarten
At Howick Baptist Kindergarten, we provide quality early childhood education to children and their parents from the Howick community and beyond.
We aim to provide an environment appropriate to each child’s development where he or she can grow holistically in a caring atmosphere, supported by qualified teachers.
We believe in the uniqueness of each person as created by God, and their right to a safe and healthy life.
We understand the importance of the family unit and our responsibility to support all family structures.
We take the Christian Biblical philosophy as the basis for how we view the world, our community and our curriculum. Combined with our Christian philosophy, our curriculum also strongly follows the Early Childhood National Framework of Te Whāriki.
