About us

Kawakawa Bay Kindergarten is centrally located in the rural seaside community of Kawakawa Bay.  We have great facilities and a wonderful play area for the children.  Our team consists of two teachers, a teacher aide and an office administrator, we are also lucky enough to have some wonderful volunteers and the full support of our community.

One of our most recent projects was to create a Cultural Art Garden.  This is just one of the many areas that enables us to allow the children to learn in a warm and welcoming environment.  We also have a pet rabbit, birds and fish.

Our new Interactive TV has just been installed and provides a new perspective on the IT learning within the centre.

We welcome visitors to the kindergarten, please feel free to drop by and meet us all.
