Central Kids Tairua Kindergarten

Aroha (love) and manaaki (kindness) are embedded in our relationships with tamariki and whānau at Central Kids Tairua Kindergarten. Our kaikōhau (vision) is for all tamariki to know their potential and to empower themselves through their culture, identity and language.

Our outdoor environment has a large sandpit, swings galore, native māra (gardens), grass for running and intentional play provocations for sensory exploration. Inside you will find a home away from home with invitations to play which radiate warmth and invite curiosity and interest.

Our older tamariki engage in weekly hīkoi (outings) and connect with the wider hāpori (community) to strengthen their sense of belonging and identity within our unique coastal landscape. Our hīkoi also supports the pathway to kura (school) for tamariki.

Kaiako use Incredible Years strategies and Love Pedagogy to support tamariki social and emotional competencies.

Nau mai haere mai ki tō tatou whare aroha, our door is always open.
