Katikati Kindergarten is a three teacher kindergarten, run under the umbrella of the Tauranga Regions Kindergarten Association. We are licensed for 30 children and we believe that children should be respected as individuals and that each child’s culture and whanau will be respected and embraced. Through nurturing, creativity and play, we provide a fun, positive, safe and caring environment for children to explore at their own pace whereby individual learning styles, dispositions and temperaments are acknowledged and supported.
Children will be empowered to take responsibility for their own learning with support of our teaching team. We are an Enviro-Kindergarten, whereby we role-model respect for our environment through conservation, recycling, composting and the use of natural resources wherever possible. Our environment is aesthetically inviting for children to explore at their own pace. Individual learning styles, dispositions and temperaments are acknowledged, supported and enriched.
Visitors are welcome to come and explore and experience the environment for themselves.
Session hours are:
Monday – Thursday: 8.30am – 2.30pm (with ten of our younger children leaving at 12.30)
Friday 8.30am – 12.45pm
We offer 20 hours FREE education, however, due to 2011 government funding cuts, we have had to introduce a $2.00 per day DONATION per family.
