A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. This is an old Chinese saying that has inspired the philosophy of St. Christopher's Kindergarten since its inception in 1985. It is our belief that good school education helps a child to take the first step in the educational journey with enthusiasm, pleasure and confidence. A positive attitude to learning is an asset for life.
Our aim is to provide your child with an enjoyable, stimulating and educational time and to teach them a variety of skills and social graces to help them follow on to their next big adventure - Prep school!
Our staff team is very experienced and committed to supporting the children and their families. It is important to us that your child is happy and secure and makes good progress in their time at St. Christopher’s.
Head teacher Philosophy
I believe that as an early childhood educator I am responsible for providing toddlers and young children with positive learning experiences. I strive to model respect, patient, and care for children and adults I come in contact with. Children have the right to have their needs met and receive the proper education while in the care of their caregivers.
Children are motivated to learn when they have opportunities to make choices in an environment that is enriching and stimulating. Children are curious from infancy and have a desire to learn from their environment and those around them.
To Challenge each student to attain excellence in every aspect of life in a loving and caring environment.
To provide an excellent academic and holistic education for all students irrespective of colour, creed, ability or background, guided by Christian principles.
To create a firm foundation for all students as they embark on their educational journey, from pre - school to pre - university, with confidence and inspiration.
To maintain a high quality, intellectually stimulating, open realistic educational environment where every student is valued.
To reach and uphold the values and duties to self, family, humankind, country and the world.
