Taita Kindergarten offers a welcoming home-away-from-home environment for tamariki and their whānau. Our kindergarten celebrates the diversity and richness of culture and language in our community through song, stories, food and artwork which adorn our walls.
Our team aspires to develop a lifelong passion for learning in our tamariki, encouraging questions and creatively discovering new ways and ideas to teach through play. Our teachers create experiences and opportunities to help children develop the social skills and attitude they need for a future of learning.
We are proud that our kindergarten has become a meeting place for families in our multi-cultural suburb and a place for tamariki to express who they are. Our Philosophy is this whakatauki “Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti arahia o tatou mahi” - let the uniqueness of the child guide us in our work”
