About Us and Our Programme

Trentham Kindergarten in Upper Hutt has strong community relationships and values and promotes whānau involvement.


Our programme follows the children’s interests and children lead their own learning. We celebrate the cultural diversity of our community. Each day we have a kori time which has a focus on te reo through waiata and tikanga practices. We value and respect our bicultural heritage.


We offer a learning environment where children's interests, strengths and passions are fostered and where learning is fun.  


We provide a safe and welcoming environment for children and support the development of healthy lifestyles with a combination of learning about our environment, healthy food and physical activity.


Our programme provides learning opportunities to build on children’s interests and experiences.  Our teachers welcome the chance to talk with you about your child - and appreciate what you can share about your child's life outside kindergarten.


Monday to Friday:  8:30am – 2:30pm



We are proud of our large outdoor environment which we are redeveloping to stimulate and provide challenges for children. This will incorporate new gardens and fruit trees to provide kai for our community into the future.
