Winton Kindergarten team members headed to Wellington for the 2019 Prime Minister's Education Excellence Awards on Tuesday night.

While they did not win their section, they were finalists in excellence in teaching and learning for their nature-based learning environment.

Teacher Christina Vaughan said yesterday, ''We are having a 'bucket list for teachers' experience here in Wellington ... We spent the evening celebrating alongside our fellow finalists from across New Zealand.''

Minister of Education Chris Hipkins presented them with a certificate and a $3000 cheque.

The team was also presented with a certificate and trophy at New Zealand Kindergartens headquarters by chief executive Jill Bond, having been named the recipient of the 2019 NZK Cultural Award on September 6.
