Nau mai, haere mai

Hurupaki Kindergarten is nestled beneath the majestic Hurupaki Mountain and beside the Hurupaki Primary School in Three Mile Bush Road, Kamo.  Our enrolled families come from Kamo and the surrounding rural areas as well as from other parts of Whangarei.

We have four fully qualified and fully registered Teachers – Dene Cheeseman (Head Teacher), Megan Spijkerbosch, Jo Atkins and Paula Shaw – and a part time Administrator – Lisa Johnstone – all with current first aid certificates. We have a low teacher to child ratio of 1:10.


We have a lovely well resourced Kindergarten with lots of outdoor space for your child to run around in. The programme offered at Hurupaki Kindergarten is child initiated and focuses on the children’s strengths and interests within a safe, fun and nurturing environment. We have a passion for Physical Literacy and Active Movement and run a Physical Literacy Programme throughout our sessions assist the children to consolidate foundation skills that will lead them to being ready for the formal learning environment of school.  For more information about this programme have a look at this website


We have a close relationship with our Kindergarten community and with the Hurupaki Primary School.

We welcome new enrolments so come in and take a look around or give us a call or email.


We look forward to meeting you!

Dene, Megan, Jo, Paula, and Lisa
