Freedom to explore, freedom to learn... that’s what I love about our kindy!

Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti arahia o tatou mahi. (Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work)

Welcome to Kindy Kids Huapai

We offer authentic learning experiences in a home away from home environment.

We are a Ministry of Education fully licenced Early Childhood Education and Care Centre. We are licenced for 25 children and provide 20 hours free ECE per week for 3 and 4 year olds (maximum 6 hours per day). WINZ subsidies are available for eligible families. Our emphasis is on nature as a vast and wonderful classroom. Our outdoor space is like a good old fashion kiwi backyard, where there is plenty of space to explore and provides children an opportunity to use their naturally wonderful imaginations. Our playground includes climbing equipment, mud kitchen, bikes, rope swings and plenty of water play.
