Nau Mai, Haere Mai Ki
At KatiKids, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.
With a safe and nurturing environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.
Our centre caters for tamariki aged 0-6yrs and we are open 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday. Conveniently located on the Main Street, we are easy to find and within a short travelling distance to the local town, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.
Your child will love the well laid out learning corners at our centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection. There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.
Our teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.
Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development. All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life. This special environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.
"Love this kindy! My daughter is happy, which makes me happy!"
“Overall we really like Katikids and feel that it is the only choice for our children. Everyone is always kind and friendly, saying hello and goodbye as we come and go. I love that I can ask most staff how my child’s day went and generally they can give me a few details. It’s really noticeable who is particularly passionate about engaging with your children, and that is really meaningful to us.”
“You're doing a fabulous job! It’s been a hard few months with COVID-19 but the centre maintained open communication, addressed issues and supported all the little ones back into care. Thank you to all the teachers who look after our children and teach them - they teach our kids but also teach us as parents so much more!"
