Katoa Kindergarten

52 Takapuwahia Drive, Elsdon, Porirua 04 237 4262
About Us and Our Programme

Ka oho te wairua, ka matāra te tinana, he aroha ki te aroha,

ka kā te rāma. When the spirit is awakened, when the body is alert, when the love is unconditional, enlightenment flows. Nā Te Rauparaha

 

This whakatauki has meaning to us as it was said by one of our chiefs, Te Rauparaha. 

 

Our kindergarten is based in beautiful Elsdon in Porirua, right in the heart of Ngati Toa iwi.  We are fortunate to be close to our local Marae, Takapuwahia and visit the Marae weekly to read stories, sing songs and just hang out.

 

The children at Katoa are part of an inclusive environment that acknowledges the importance of social skills and virtues to support children for lifelong learning.

PLAYGROUP
