Welcome to Takaro Kindergarten

Kia Ora from Takaro Kindergarten, an open and inclusive learning environment driven by bicultural and multicultural practices.

Te Reo Māori is spoken freely and integrated throughout our kindergarten programme. Tangata whenua are supported and everyone is fostered to become successful learners. Ako (learning together) is promoted and celebrated.

A spacious outdoor area helps children develop an appreciation for the natural environment. Creativity and problem solving skills are fostered through a rich mix of planned and spontaneous activities.

Come and experience the warmth and wairua permeating all aspects of life at Takaro Kindergarten.
