Kihikihi Kindergarten

Kihikihi Kindergarten

Central Kids Kihikihi Kindergarten is located in the rural town of Kihikihi, with an expansive park-like outdoor area, providing ample space for children to explore and be physically active. The indoor area is inviting and rich in resources and learning opportunities.

Kihikihi Kindergarten is an enviroschools kindergarten, with a commitment to sustainability where children develop a love of the natural environment, make sense of their world, and develop ways to take care of Papatūānuku.

We have a well-established teaching team, who are fully trained, registered and experienced and are committed to providing high quality early childhood education.

Central Kids Kihikihi’s vision is to provide a positive, warm, and inviting environment where children, parents, and whānau are valued and welcomed.

We believe that relationships are the key to quality education and we develop positive reciprocal relationships with children, their families, and the community.

Our kindergarten whakataukī encompasses all that we do and believe at Central Kids Kihikihi.
“Mā tō ako, mā te tipu, ka neke whakamua tātou.
As we learn and as we grow, we move forward together”.
