Parihaka Kindergarten

Welcome to Parihaka Kindergarten. We are centrally located, nestled half way up Mount Parihaka. Our kindergarten provides opportunities for exploration within a spacious attractive and well-resourced outdoor natural setting. The indoor environment is stimulating and encourages learning and development.

We cater to a diverse cross section of the community, many families coming from all corners of Whangarei. The individual learning aspirations of children and their families/whanau are met through inclusive practices and the high degree of collaboration, motivation and professionalism within the teaching team.

Shelley, Christie, Awhina and Wendy are registered and qualified Early Childhood Teachers, each bringing with them their own special strengths and experience. Linda, our Administrator supports the team and kindergarten.

We are uniquely flexible and listen to the needs of our families.
