Welcome to Matua Kindergarten

Here at Matua Kindergarten our purpose is to: Grow confident, competent life-long learners through their play.

For us this means cultivating a place where your child feels happy, safe and at ease. Building authentic relationships with our families is one of the ways we help children to feel right at home.

Passionate, qualified, registered teachers will support your child on their self-directed learning journey. Our 'home-like' environment encourages exploration and natural play. As the day's diverse activities, events, and (adventures!) provide a rich variety of learning opportunities.

Our children just love our outdoor and indoor areas and resources, engaging their own unique interests with creative and imaginative play that's full of colour, texture and movement. 

Just as a woven cord is stronger, we believe in partnering with our families and the wider community of Matua. This includes developing the bi-cultural relationship consistent with Aotearoa/ New Zealand's founding document, Te Tiriti o Waitangi.


Our hours are Monday to Friday:

Morning Sessions: 8:45am - 12:45pm
Afternoon Sessions: 8:45am - 2:45pm 

Holiday programmes available following Term's 1, 2 & 3.

How much will it cost?

We offer up to 30 free hours* per week, and accept voluntary donations to help us to continue the great work we do!  We are a donation-based kindergarten, click here to find out more about the average donations we receive.
