About us

We are placed in a rural community setting beside Waiau Pa Primary School. We have 30 children attending kindergarten each day. We provide options for 3 hour and 6 hour sessions. 

We provide an environment and curriculum that reflects the holistic way children learn and grow with an inquiry based curriculum. We believe in providing a warm, welcoming environment where there are equitable opportunities to empower children to learn, explore, communicate and contribute, and where their well-being, sense of belonging and individuality is valued. We value the contribution of family, the wider community, and we support and respect cultural beliefs.
