About us and Our Programme
Angie Kitto (Head Teacher), Nelly Kendall-Carpenter and Jade Holley.
We provide a rich range of experiences including gardening, art, cooking and physical play, bush experiences and technology. We support children’s social skills, and help them to see themselves as learners.
Our kindergarten is a place where tamariki and whānau feel safe, respected and cared for.
Kotahitanga time when we come together each morning gives children a sense of belonging and the chance to use Te Reo Māori and to learn about tikanga Māori.
We hold the healthy heart award: Pā-Harakeke.
We support children and families with positive transitions to school.
Monday to Friday: 8:30am - 2:30pm
