Here at Papatoetoe North Kindergarten (formerly known as Kotiri Kindergarten), teachers support children’s transitions into and out of the kindergarten, and also support older children to visit the local school.
Papatoetoe North Kindergarten values relationships with our parents and whãnau that are strong and reciprocal.
A bi-annual cultural festival celebrates all the cultures of the families who attend our Kindergarten. The environment, music, and excursions also showcase cultures.
Our kindergartens have early childhood qualified and registered teachers. The teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education. Each kindergarten has a head teacher plus teachers and support staff. Quality learning programmes are based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.
