About Koru Kindy

Our Philosophy

Our centre is a unique space dedicated to the development and support of young children within our community. We are a home away from home offering a nurturing and calm environment where children are given the freedom to choose and direct their own learning.

Curiosity – the desire to explore and learn is at the heart of our Centre focus. We strive to support children’s natural curiosity to explore and learn through offering a wide range of mediums to scaffold children’s ever developing abilities. Teachers here at Koru Kindy are dedicated professionals offering an environment that is both inclusive and accepting.

Communication with whanau and the wider community allows both children and families to make connections with their home environment and develop a sense of belonging here at Kindy.

Testimonials About Koru Kindy

Koru Kindy has been a great fit for our family. The teachers really care about the children and plan activities that the kids get excited about – they are not afraid to let them get wet and muddy! Plus they have an amazing outdoor space, basically like a big backyard, with lots of room to run and explore.

My son has been at Koru kindy now for 2 years. I really love how the teachers cater to the children’s needs and pick up on any personal interests that my son has. The indoor outdoor flow I think is awesome because it gives the children a choice. The teachers at Koru kindy are beyond amazing and are so welcoming to our family every day. My son looks forward to going and has a great group of mates.
