Thames Kindergarten

Thames Kindergarten

Central Kids Thames Kindergarten is part of your community. We are a whānau focused kindergarten, and parents/whānau are always welcome to stay, make a cuppa and spend time with us.

Our kindergarten supports sustainable practices including gardening, recycling and sourcing sustainable resources. Children are able to plant and collect vegetables and herbs fresh from our garden to use in our daily baking. We also offer a weekly Ngāhere programme where children develop an appreciation and respect for Papatūānuku. This gives our older tamariki the opportunity to spend one whole day a week immersed in nature at a local bush reserve.

We are extremely proud of our kindergarten and programme. We look forward to meeting you soon!
