Welcome to Katikati Kindergarten

Here at Katikati Kindergarten our purpose is to: play, thrive and grow!

Our kindergarten has been a proud part of the Katikati community and gorgeous landscape since 1987.

Our tamariki love our indoor areas and large green, leafy outdoor spaces.  Providing the ability to engage in their own unique interests with creative and imaginative play that's full of colour, texture and movement. 

Our beautiful purpose built Adobe outdoor play area even has a hobbit house and a living roof.

We are a proud 'Beyond Green-Gold' Enviro-Kindergarten, (top Enviroschools rating), where we model how to take care of Papatuanuku / the earth and sustainable practices such as our garden and our awesome worm farm!

> We also initiated the community project, Kati KaiWay - an edible walkway that belongs to all!

Our passionate, degree qualified teachers have a nurturing approach, supporting children to discover and explore at their own pace in a safe and caring environment.

Every day provides a rich variety of learning opportunities through activities, events and adventures!

We welcome all tamariki and whānau to visit us.


8:30am - 2:30pm, Monday to Thursday. 8:30am - 12:45pm Friday. Sessions: 8:30am - 1pm or 8:30am - 2:30pm. Holiday programme available during school holidays.
