My child is thriving

My child currently attends the kindergarten - I've just read a previous review about a child who attended when they were five, and it sounds like they had an absolutely awful teacher - awful teachers, unfortunately, can be found all over New Zealand...
The current teachers are wonderful: my child is very happy and thriving. My child's teacher would never tolerate bullying in any form and her classroom has many books in it that the children look at often. While screens are strongly discouraged for young children, books are certainly not. And homoeopathic sleep drops? Not anything I've ever come across.

The school is fucking shit, never send your child there

As a 5 year old, I went to the kindergarten, Te Rawhiti, when I was younger. I had a very bad experience there, and I would rate it 0 stars if I could. The teacher was very opinionated, and would not let me talk about what I wanted to, or play with toys. I was bullied a lot there, the teacher denied it and the school said that "if children are bullied, they deserve it because of their behaviour in a past life". Before I started to attend Te Rawhiti, the teacher needed to visit my house to "make sure it is safe". At that time, I read a lot of books, which the teacher saw, and she said "a child of my age should not be reading". We suspect she may have been putting homeopathic sleeping drops in my water to calm me down. When I went there, I tried to talk about books, but she stopped me. Because of her and the bullying, I have been homeschooled for the last 5 years, and have only started going to school again this year. Since then, the teacher I had has left, but there could be an even worse teacher to replace her. Please never send your child to this school.
