Celebrating children’s learning through sustainable education based on strong values.
Session TimesKindergarten Monday - Friday 8.30 – 2.30
Matangirau Kindergarten team Gina Wright (Head Teacher), Rebecca Parr (Teacher) and Tina Te Amo (Kindergarten Aide), are highly motivated and excited about celebrating children’s learning through sustainable education based on strong values.
Our teaching team is about being a part of the Wairoa community. The children are given opportunities to embrace their kindergarten setting, making connections and developing relationships with places of importance, through stories, waiata, visitors, or outings.
We believe in encouraging and supporting children to be curious, to explore and gain knowledge, and involve family and community at different levels. We value the opportunities to network with colleagues and the wider community.
The unique framework of Matangirau Kindergarten in Wairoa is that we coexist within Tiaho School grounds. The kindergarten timetable is Monday – Thursday 8.30am – 2.30pm, and Friday 8.30 – 12.45pm.
At Matangirau Kindergarten we believe children develop and gain a sense of belonging through opportunities to develop reciprocal responsibility to care for themselves, the environment and others, their families, whanau and visitors to our kindergarten.
