About Us and Our Programme

At Paremata Kindergarten we are fortunate to be on the beach front and so have a lovely natural outdoor environment for the children to play in. We place special importance on creating a welcoming environment and, on building and nurturing relationships with our children, families and whānau.


Paremata Kindergarten operates a free play programme and provides a range of opportunities for children to learn, explore, gain knowledge, dispositions and skills and of course have fun. Children are able to explore both the inside and outside learning environments and choose areas of interest to them.  On Monday morning there is kapa haka (Māori waiata and dance), and on Thursday we also have library time where the children are welcome to choose one of our books to take home to read. Returned library books are placed in the ‘library return box’. This is the box which is kept on the shelf in the children’s locker room.  We are fortunate to have Susan who is our admin support in the office and, Kevin, our teacher aide, who works with both groups of children. 


Monday to Friday:   8:30am – 2.30pm



We are a 100% qualified teaching team, with a diverse range of skills and interests that we are able to share with the children.  It is a privilege for us to be able to share in your child’s learning journey and to work alongside them as they continue their journey of lifelong learning.
