About Nettie Riley kindergarten

Inside the Kindergarten tamariki will discover a range of activities and natural resources in a modern setting. This spacious area also features a dedicated sleep room for tamariki who need to nap during the day.

We are dedicated to providing the best education for tamariki with a 100% qualified and experienced teaching team.
