Tai Tamariki Kindergarten

55 Cable Street, Wellington 04 802 4041
About Us and Our Programme

Tai Tamariki Kindergarten is a whānau-based full day model, licenced for 30 Tamariki 1-5 years with all ages learning alongside each other nestled within the rich cultural context of Te Papa Tongarewa.


This unique setting and our central community are viewed as valuable extensions of our learning environment.


Our vision is to provide a welcoming environment where Tamariki are enriched by playful inquiry that is nurturing, inquisitive, challenging and reflective.


To develop knowledge and skills that will support them in being capable, to have a strong sense of mana and confident identity of themselves as learners.


We notice, recognise, intentionally plan for, and respond, to both the individual and shared interests of our Tamariki as they emerge through their play and interactions with others.


We are committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa, embracing our bi-cultural heritage to promote Te Reo Māori me Ona Tikanga to be visible and meaningful.





Monday to Friday:   8.30am - 4.30pm

Monday to Friday:   9.00am - 5.00pm




 Our friendly teaching team fosters a welcoming and supportive approach that encourages respect for everyone. We acknowledge the uniqueness of our tamariki and recognise their need to learn at their own pace and in their own time. 


We know that the best possible learning outcomes for tamariki are achieved when kaiako have an authentic and nurturing whanaungatanga/relationship with them and their whānau.
