About Us and Our ProgrammeKia ora from Pukerua Bay Kindergarten and He Ara Tika Playgroup.
Our kindergarten caters for children from two to five years and sessions run from 8.30 to 2.30 Monday to Friday.
Our playgroup runs from Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 12 noon and is available for babies and toddlers. Children attend playgroup sessions with their parents or whānau.
He Ara Tika playgroup is an ideal place where very young children can experience positive learning outcomes with each child learning in his or her own way and at their own pace. Each day one of the teachers from our Kindergarten is at the playgroup to work in partnership with parents/whānau to foster a quality learning environment.
Our two services are closely linked, with weekly visits between the groups. This supports a smooth transition from playgroup to kindergarten. We also have a strong relationship with our local school, and again visits between school and kindergarten happen on a weekly basis.
