Taihape Kindergarten

Toroa Street, Taihape 06 388 0368
About Us and Our Programme


We are just behind the Gumboot sculpture, at the foot of Mount Stewart, and we have large attractive grounds.  .  


We are committed to the Treaty of Waitangi. We have a good relationship with local iwi, Mokai Patea, and a strong bicultural programme.


Taihape Kindergarten is an inclusive environment where tamariki are safe and happy, and whānau from all cultures are welcomed and valued.


We provide a stimulating and fun environment where we encourage challenge, risk taking, exploration and creativity.


Children learn through play, and develop their interests, strengths and abilities.



Monday to Friday:  8:30am - 2:30pm
