Northwood Kindergarten

Northwood Kindergarten

Central Kids Northwood is a place of discovery with many areas for children/tamariki to explore and learn in. Situated in the quiet Nukuhau suburban area of Taupō, overlooking Taupō nui a Tia (Lake Taupo) and the breath-taking views of ngā maunga/mountains Tongariro, Ngauruhoe, Ruapehu and Tauhara create a fantastic backdrop to our kindergarten.

At Central Kids Northwood we foster a community of lifelong learners. Qualified, registered and passionate teachers nurture and facilitate a love of learning. We value learning dispositions such as fun/rekareka and happiness, confidence/mana maia, courage/mana hautoa, perseverance/u-tonu-tanga and trust/whaka-ae-tika, where tamariki are encouraged to be drivers of their own learning.

Central Kids Northwood is well resourced and provides many opportunities for children to do their learning through their play. Please feel free to come and visit us and see what we have to offer.
