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 - 3:30pm
