“Te Timatatanga o Te Matauranga is a licensed Kindergarten that follows Te Whaariki, the Ministry of Education’s Early Childhood curriculum, and  Te Tiriti, especially in terms of bringing about equal outcomes for Māori and ensuring that te reo Māori is not lost but thrives.”

We have a holistic way of encouraging learning opportunities, providing a bi-lingual approach and advocating te reo Maori.

Our tamariki learn through many play dimensions, like kaitiakitanga {guardianship}, manaakitanga {kindness and support}, whakawhanaungatanga {relating well to others}, Nga Hononga {building relationships}, Whanau Tangata {family and community}, and te kaupapa toitu {sustainability} – all while having fun and being well cared for by experienced, qualified kaiako who have a passion for what they do.

Our kindergarten is open for tamariki from 8:30am-2:30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding our kindergarten calendar holiday break periods.

We cater to tamariki from 2 to 5 years old who are eligible for 30 hours free service per week as a Ministry funded programme.

Our kaupapa has an extra feature where we provide our tamariki with parakuihi {breakfast}, paramanawa {morning tea}, tina {lunch} and paramanawa {afternoon tea} to ensure that our tamariki have the energy to learn and opportunities to develop relationships through sharing meals together/kaitahi.

Nau mai! Haere mai!
