Paraparaumu Beach Kindergarten is situated on the stunning Kapiti Coast near the beach.
The teaching team works hard to ensure a beautiful bicultural environment which includes reference to the legends that relate to our area.
We value environmental sustainability including water conservation and we also encourage healthy eating practices. The benefits of these commitments influence the learning in our community.
Our programme is based on our children’s and teachers’ interests with input from the community. We draw widely on our beautiful natural environment empowering our children to take ownership of it.
We are proud of our Pa Harakeke (Gold Healthy Heart Award) from the Heart Foundation, encouraging and modelling healthy eating practices.
