Ruahine Kindergartens

Welcome to Hokowhitu Kindergarten

Hokowhitu Kindergarten families come from diverse and multi-cultural backgrounds. They are encouraged to be actively involved in their children’s learning.

We provide an attractive well-resourced, accessible, stimulating and developmentally appropriate, yet challenging, environment. Our well established kindergarten is a safe and healthy place for children to learn and grow in.

Outside we have mature trees and multi-purpose equipment that enables challenging experiences, while inside offers an inviting, print-rich, colourful and welcoming atmosphere. The teachers regularly vary curriculum areas to facilitate child-initiated projects and ideas from the community. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
