At Timatanga Hou Kindergarten we embrace the kaupapa of whakawhanaungatanga, a whānau based approach, where we develop respectful, welcoming relationships with children, whānau and the wider community. These relationships foster and provide an environment that encourages Mana Atua, the emotional well-being of each child.
Our environment shows manaakitanga, where children feel safe and nurtured, where they can build relationships, independence, be accepted for who they are and become confident competent learners.
Out Kindergarten is licensed for infants, toddlers and young children, operating 49 weeks of the year. We operate as a full day model, and
whānau choose the session times which best suits their needs. Our routine is flexible allowing us to work intuitively with children to ensure we meet their individual needs.
