About the kindergarten

Our kindergarten has a beautiful spacious outdoor area for children to explore and discover. Children love the natural outdoor play-space which has been developed and enhanced with native plantings and rocks to give a distinctive New Zealand feel. A forest with bridge, playhouse and vegetable planters provide connections with nature.The inside environment encourages exploration with creative art spaces, books, technology and literacy areas. Our friendly and experienced teachers actively engage with children to support their learning and development.

Our central location means we have families from all over the Hutt Valley coming to us and we have relationships with several local primary schools.
