About Us

Girls playing at Durie Hill Kindergarten

We are a community based not-for-profit organisation with a Kindergarten in most local Wanganui communities, and three around the Central Plateau including Taihape, Waiouru and Ohakune. We are passionate about providing high-quality early childhood education for children aged from 2.5 to 6 years, and offer a range of hours to suit individual family needs.

Our Kindergartens are well resourced and have large, expansive, safe and child-friendly outdoor play environments that can’t be beaten in any childcare setting.

We have 100% qualified teachers in all our teaching positions and will continue to do so as we strongly believe the quality of early childhood education should never be compromised by having less than 100% qualified staff. We also have teacher child ratios of 1 teacher to 10 children in all of our Kindergartens with group sizes of 40 and below.

We have a strong focus on the professional development of all our teaching teams to ensure they are kept current with custom and practice and continue to meet registration requirements in the early childhood education setting.

Give your child the best start in life - choose Your Kindergarten.
