Rāwhiti Kindergarten

Central Kids Rāwhiti is a well-established kindergarten serving second and third generation families. Relationships are at the heart of all we do. We aspire to be welcoming, respectful and inclusive, fostering a sense of belonging. We welcome parent participation, valuing the partnership between kindergarten and families. Our goal is to create a sense of whanaungatanga and connectedness among the children, whānau, teachers and the wider Matamata community.

The open, airy indoor space of the kindergarten is inviting and allows children the freedom to move which supports our strong music and movement programme. Outdoors, we have areas set up for climbing, sliding, swinging, balancing, as well as a very large outdoor grassed space that provides opportunities for children to run and play physical games. We have a tranquil native garden area with a 45 year old Kauri tree and a worm farm. We take part in the Enviroschools programme and have a strong sustainability focus for children and families.

Central Kids Rāwhiti is an extremely well-resourced kindergarten, providing opportunities for a wide range of experiences that nurture the development of self-expression, self-esteem, confidence, independence, experimentation & exploration, peaceful conflict resolution, numeracy and literacy, problem solving and a sense of fun.
