Kia ora and welcome to Howick Kindergarten

Welcome to Howick Kindergarten!  Our kindergarten has well-established links to schools and to the local community.  This helps your children with their transition into school.

Here at Howick Kindergarten we have a strong focus on inclusion – everyone is welcome – by learning from each other, we learn about ourselves.

Howick Kindergarten’s reflective and qualified teaching team are passionate about early childhood education and achieving the best learning outcomes for your children.

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.
