Hillcrest Kindergarten is a community based educational provider in Kaikohe. We are based on the corner of Hillcrest and Park Roads and have been part of the community since 1955.

We are a kindergarten that is culturally diverse. Our families belong to several ethnic groups and our common theme is respecting and looking after each other. He wahi maanaki tenei mo tatou katoa.


Our programme is woven within the Principals and Strands of Te Whaariki, the Early Childhood Curriculum He Whaariki Matauranga mo nga Mokopuna o Aotearoa. It is an exciting sector to be involved in and teachers aim to follow children’s strengths and interests to stimulate and extend their learning within these dimensions.


You will find three very dedicated teachers who are qualified and registered who work hard to enhance learning opportunities for your tamariki. Our ratio is 1-10. We also have a very dedicated support staff/admin person, who is also our cook. We provide morning tea and cooked lunches for all our children each day except for on Fridays when children enjoy bringing their own lunch in a lunchbox. We have a Rito Healthy Heart award from the Heart Foundation for promoting and providing healthy food and physical activity.


We are looking for children to join our waiting list and pride ourselves on an open door policy for all whaanau/families community and visitors so please feel free to call in, email or phone us. Welcome Haere mai Piki mai Kake mai.
