COVID - 19
All Kindergartens will remain open tomorrow (Tuesday 24th March) and Wednesday 25th March for children from families where parents work in essential services. This is to enable parents to make other arrangements.
Essential services include health workers, police, supermarket workers and pharmacy staff.
We realise this may be a stressful time for our staff, whānau and friends. Our thoughts are with you and we will continue to do our best to support our whānau in any way we can.
All kindergartens will be closing from the afternoon of Wednesday March 25.
He Whānau Manaaki o Tararua Kindergartens is a not-for-profit group of 101 kindergartens and a home based service committed to providing quality education and a caring approach.
Our name translates as ‘Caring Family’, and that says a lot about the way we go about things.
When you choose Whānau Manaaki, you have the reassurance of knowing your service is committed to the highest quality standards.
Our approach means your child receives the care and education that is right for them, at a pace that works best for them so they can make the most of every growth and learning opportunity in their own time, in their own way.
There's a proud tradition of helping children and families make the most of those vital pre-school years.
Whānau Manaaki Kindergartens was formed when the Wellington Kindergarten Association and the Rimutaka Kindergarten Assocation joined to create one organisation to better support our high quality services and to advocate for children. Whanganui Association have also since joined us.
We look forward to you becoming part of our 'caring family' too.
