Kia ora and welcome to Aorere Kindergarten

At Aorere Kindergarten, our qualified teachers place emphasis on children leading their own learning. Teaching staff work alongside children to enhance teachable moments and to develop and nurture children’s individual capabilities and competencies.

Aorere Kindergarten has a newly refurbished modern indoor space and outdoor environment.  You are welcome to visit Aorere Kindergarten to meet our teaching team and see the kindergarten in action!

We are a caring and passionate team consisting of four qualified teachers, a part-time teacher, a teacher aide, an administrator and an education support worker. We work closely with the children and their families providing them with the best learning opportunities as the foundation for their future learning.  We take pride in our beautiful kindergarten and use resources to provoke, support and enrich our children’s interests.
