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.
