When you enrol with us, you become part of something much bigger than an early childhood education service.
There are 101 Whānau Manaaki Kindergartens across the regions we serve, bringing learning, connection and fun to families across Whanganui, Central Plateau, Horowhenua, Kapiti, Porirua, Greater Wellington, Upper Hutt and Wairarapa. We also provide a home based service - Etu Ao in Porirua and Levin.
Our teaching teams and educators undertake regular professional development, are continuously assessed, and are supported by professional leaders whose sole focus is one of educational excellence. We also take care of the ongoing needs of our kindergartens - looking after buildings, playgrounds, finances, professional standards and more. You can read more about how we work with your local kindergarten and what it means for you, your tamariki, and your extended whānau below.
