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.

 

“My first impression when I arrived at Pukeatua Kindergarten with my children was a very warm and safe environment for my children, and I said to myself this is it. This is the place I’ve been looking for. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.”
Ria

 

“What I like the most about Pukeatua Kindy is the Teachers. They are friendly and welcoming.”
Fiona

 

“The staff are awesome. I love the set up of the Kindy – it has a great feel of openness and spaciousness. The outside area provides the children with the right mix of equipment and natural areas for play. The trees and garden create a great source of learning for the children. There is a great feeling when you walk in and that’s important for me.”

Greetings, hello, I am happy to share my opinions about Pukeatua Kindergarten because my children Josiah and Seneti attend there. I’m very happy because every morning I drop my children to kindy and they are happy because they are coming to kindy. There are lots of different activities both inside and outside. It is a free environment for the kids to play and it is very clean. The children have the chance to explore and play freely whatever they choose. I see the teachers supporting and caring for the children and also the teachers communicate well with the parents and families.
Thank you and goodbye
Falesau
