Ruawai Kindergarten is a fantastic rural Kindergarten providing our Kaipara tamariki with the opportunity to explore, share and learn alongside their peers, teachers and families.

At Ruawai Kindergarten we believe that children develop best in a natural home like environment where we actively support children’s transitions in an environment, where holistic development is underpinned by the Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whâriki.

Ruawai Kindergarten is an Enviroschools, which is guided by five principles, these are; Sustainable Communities, Maori Perspectives, Learning for Sustainability, Respect for Diversity of People and Culture & Empowered Students.

We promote a culture of respect, independence and responsibility (Manaakitanga). We view tamariki, kaiako, whânau and community as equal partners in the teaching and learning process.

Our natural environment gives children the freedom to explore, (regardless of the weather) interact and experiment socially with loose parts, within a culture of trust; developing competence, interdependence and self-regulation.


Haere Mai Koutou! Come and visit – spend time with us, enjoy your surroundings and our awesome learning environment…  See you soon!
