Onerahi is a seaside suburb approximately 7km’s southeast of Whangarei City and is situated on the Whangarei Harbour. We have a diverse multicultural population with a strong sense of community. This community is serviced by two local primary schools which the kindergarten has close relationships with.

We have a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a large, safe and inspiring natural environment and are well resourced. We provide a stimulating, challenging programme based on children’s strengths and interests, and help prepare them for lifelong learning. We are committed to environmental sustainability through our vegetable garden, worm farm, composting, and recycling programmes.

We are an all day kindergarten with a roll of 40 children. We have 4 registered teachers with a ratio of 1:10. We are proud to be a fees free kindergarten. We work closely with the local primary schools to help children transition to school.
