Helen Downer Kindergarten

Central Kids Helen Downer was the first kindergarten in Rotorua. We opened in 1954, established by Mrs Helen Downer and we are proudly named in her honour.

We have a large outdoor playground where children can freely engage with nature, including food gardens and a worm farm.

We are well resourced to enhance children’s learning further, supported by amazing teachers. We are a diverse kindergarten with many cultures. Each child and their whānau has a dedicated teacher to awhi them through the transitions – kaitiakitanga.

We are whānau and for the tamariki.

Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai – Nurture the seed and it will blossom.
