We work in partnership with you and your child

One of the great things about enrolling your child at a Hutt City Kindergarten is that you get to meet many other parents (and family members) like yourself, who have children of the same age. In fact our kindergartens are vibrant communities providing education, support and friendship. You and your family are a very important part of this community and there are many ways for you to get involved in kindergarten life.


Our aim is to work in partnership with you and your child to make the most of their early learning years. We recognise you as the main educator of your son or daughter, who comes to us with a history of experiences, attitudes, knowledge and skills that they’ve developed at home within your family and culture. We’d love to know about this background, what they are good at and what they enjoy doing.


Individual Needs

If your child has special learning or developmental needs, we’ll work closely with you to provide them with the very best learning opportunities. We also have strong connections with a number of agencies and specialists who can offer additional support for you and your child. Please talk to us if you have any queries or concerns in this regard. 

”We have a very friendly family oriented feeling at our kindy… it’s like a little community. The children see that their parents are part of their education and we help families feel like they’ve got a place to come. It’s important for families to feel confident in the facility… they can stay as long as they like.”
