About Us and Our Programme

Our kindergarten was the first kindergarten in Tawa and we have been around since the 1950's with second, third and fourth generations attending. Whānau and community are highly valued and we believe children learn best through the respectful relationships we have with one another.


Teachers work closely with children to develop their social competence through responsive and reciprocal relationships with people, places, and things.


At Tawa Central Kindergarten we are egg and nut free.
