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.


We have always been made to feel very welcome at kindy and my son had no problems settling in. The teachers are always approachable and often have good ideas/thoughts with what ever issue we might have. Kindy always had a variety of activities and educational experiences that kept my son busy and more than prepared him for school. My daughter is now at kindy and she also had no trouble settling in, she just loves it there and can't wait to go to morning kindy.


Both of our children have attended Maungaraki Kindergarten. One of the first things we noticed about Maungaraki Kindy is the welcoming and encouraging environment that the teaching team create. We are always made to feel welcome and have received open and honest feedback from them with regards to our children’s learning. We love the way they encouraged independence in our children, the opportunities they provide to try new things while continuing to build on the current strengths and interests of our children. Friendships are fostered through play and our children were encouraged to play co-operatively with others. Our eldest child has now moved onto school and we have been amazed at the ease at which she has settled and her readiness to learn. We attribute these achievements to the through pre-school education she had at Maungaraki Kindergarten.
