About Parkway Kindergarten

At Parkway Kindergarten we provide an environment that enables tamariki to explore, discover and engage.

Enabling each child to learn in their own unique way and at their own pace, and develop the skills for a positive attitude towards learning.

At the heart of our kindergarten is a strong sense of community and bi-culturalism with Tikanga Maori and Gagana Samoa. We have created a space which celebrates our cultural diversity and invites tamariki and their whanau to share what is important to them.
