Laughton Kindergarten

Nau Mai Haere Mai ki Central Kids Laughton, the longest established Kindergarten in Taupō.

We respect each child as an individual and believe that our tamariki are powerful, competent and bring with them their own identity, mana (strengths), mohiotanga (knowledge), interest and abilities. Our tamariki are encouraged and supported to be drivers of their own learning.

Bi-cultural practice is strongly embedded within the programme.  There is a strong commitment to ensuring that our programme, environment and teaching practice reflects the dual heritage of Aotearoa. We celebrate cultural diversity within our community and our aim is to recognise our tamariki culture in our teaching practice.

We promote a strong partnership with whānau based on authentic relationships and connectedness with our community. We provide an inclusive programme and environment, which reflects and celebrates the kaupapa/ cultures of the community that we serve.  Our ‘open door’ policy enables engagement with all whānau.

We have a strong presence in our wider community. We have a robust transition programme with all local schools, an intergenerational learning programme with our ‘Grandfriends’ at St Johns Wood Rest Home, and are part of a joint planting initiative with Greening Taupō and Taupō District Council in the park behind our kindergarten.

Central Kids Laughton is very close to the central business district and has an inviting sunny aspect. We welcome you to come in and see us anytime.
