Rothschild Road Kindergarten @ Willowbank Primary School

This brand new kindergarten is based within the school grounds at Willowbank Primary School in Gisborne, on Wurundjeri land. The kindergarten program invites children to explore, discover, create, investigate, wonder, be spontaneous, take supported risks, make mess and noise, and be wholly engaged in learning through play. Being located within the school grounds provides even more opportunities for children to experience learning in the outdoors and develop their sense of belonging in the wider community.

Rothschild Road Kindergarten is managed by the NSEYC.

Our purpose is to Love a Life of Learning and Living. Our values are Trust, Respect, Relationships and Curiosity, and these values inform everything we do. We specialise in delivering high-quality early learning programs in close partnership with families, schools and the broader community, as we know this has enormous benefits for children’s lifelong learning. Our educational philosophy includes a focus on authentic relationships to support individual children’s wellbeing and development, with a strong emphasis on learning through play in nature.
