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


“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


“Pukeatua Kindergarten has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the teaching staff are awesome. All my children have thoroughly enjoyed their time here.”
