This kindergarten operates 8:30am – 2:30pm and stays open in the school holidays.
We have a large attractive outdoor environment and encourage active spontaneous play. Our programme is well-resourced and our gardens provide fresh vegetables for our tamariki and much loved pets. Creativity is represented strongly within our programme. We welcome all families and have a diverse community base.
