We’ve asked some of our families/whānau why they chose our kindergarten and what they like about our service - and here’s what they had to say.


“I am now enjoying Kindergarten at Epuni with my third child. We have fun! He especially likes the swings and painting. The trike-a-thon was very exciting and coming up we have the disco night – yahoo! We have had good times on the bus trips over the years to the zoo, a Kapa Haka show, marine centre and fire station to name just a few.


Epuni teachers are kind and cheerful and always have a welcome “hello” when we arrive. There are many things to play with and on, and great opportunities to have fun while learning too.”

"Kia Ora, I chose Epuni Kindergarten because my son loved it from the start. The play area is safe and secure for the kids to explore freely. There are also many activities inside that allow kids to be creative. There is a sense of belonging and security in this kindy and that is thanks to the warm and friendly teaching staff. Not only do they communicate well with the kids but also with the parents and that’s a great feeling. I have noticed since my son has been at Epuni Kindergarten he has thrived in this environment, he is learning new things everyday and I believe he has grown to be a confident boy.”

“Epuni is a great kindy - both my children have enjoyed their time here. The teachers are great and supportive with family situations. My son loves the sandpit - it is an awesome area and there are lots of different activities for the children in the kindy.”

“My first impression of Epuni Kindergarten was that it is a bright, open, friendly and safe environment for our child to play and learn. During his time at kindy our son has grown from a shy, quiet, reserved child, into an outgoing, confident boy who loves to learn and is excited about starting school.”

“Epuni Kindergarten is a very safe, friendly welcoming place. The teachers are very approachable if there are any concerns. My daughter has learnt a lot of things during her time at the kindergarten.”

Epuni Kindergarten…..a very welcoming place, sheltered and secure. The teaching staff are all heart for their students, whilst sparking the children’s enthusiasm to learn and discover in every turn.”
