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 like Taita Kindy because it’s close to home and the members of staff are friendly and make parents and guardians feel welcome. They’re always open to suggestions and comments and prioritise the best interests of the children. That is great!”


“Taita Kindy is the best because the staff are very friendly and are awesome with the children. I love the way it is set up, with lots for the kids to do and learn. I also love the fact that it runs all day.”

“Mean teachers, mean teaching and my girl likes it here.”

“Taita kindy is the best for my family – I trust and believe in our teachers.”


“I chose Taita Kindy because it is close to my house and they have a friendly team in the classroom. I feel very comfortable with the atmosphere and the environment and my girl settled in well and is happy.”

“The teachers were very helpful when my daughter was settling in. She had a bit of a rough time but everyone was really helpful and friendly. I trust them that they look after my daughter, which is why she can’t wait every morning to go to kindy. I also feel very welcome and comfortable around the teachers.”
Makeyta Vailalo

“The staff are on to it with children, assisting with their needs. I feel my son has learnt a lot of basic skills and independence.”
