Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten Kuaotunu


Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten Kuaotunu

A joyous and wondrous experience of the seasons and special occasions are celebrated. Gratitude and wonder are established through karakia and blessings at morning tea time, which is a comparatively formal, social time. Each child’s birthday is celebrated with a special ceremony which includes the child’s family, as are other festivals through the year in the seasonal rhythm.

Our festival calendar usually includes: Spring Festival, Easter Festival, Lantern Festival, Midwinter Solstice and Matariki, Harvest and Pumpkin Festival, Advent and Christmas. These events include the parents and whanau and sometimes the wider community.
