About Us and Our Programme

Te Manawanui Kindergarten is an established part of the community that has recently joined the Whānau Manaaki Kindergarten family.   We are a small kindergarten situated in the Shannon school grounds.  We have a strong relationship with the school and participate in school and community events. 


We are affordable for all – we take 30 children each day from aged two, and offer them all 20 hours free.  


We have a strong bi-cultural focus and have good relationships with our local tangata whenua.  The community at Te Manawanui Kindergarten is committed to supporting and caring for each other and developing relationships between education and community services.







Monday to Friday: 8:45am - 2:45pm



 Our programme is based on Te Whāriki, our national early childhood curriculum.  We notice children’s interests, and develop play-based opportunities to extend and foster their learning, as individuals and in groups.  This gives the children confidence in their own learning, and teaches them that learning is fun.


Our team is 100% qualified, and we have many years of experience between us.  Come and visit us to find out more!.
