Kia ora and welcome to KiNZ Otara

At KiNZ Otara full day child care and early childhood learning centre we promote positive attitudes to difference and diversity, and authentic relationships with our children, parents and whānau.

Our KiNZ Otara team focus on promoting and including Maori culture in an integral way, using reo, waiata, legends and customs to uphold Te Tiriti O Waitangi.

Pasifika children and their families enrich our centre in numerous ways and we are dedicated to respecting and valuing the rich diversity of Pasifika cultures within our child care centre.

KiNZ Otara is a well-resourced dynamic early learning environment with plenty of space and a good flow of play between the indoor and outdoor environments.

Our KiNZ daycare centres have early childhood qualified and registered teachers.  The teachers are dedicated to, and passionate about, early childhood education.  Each KiNZ Childcare & Learning centre has a centre manager plus teachers and support staff.  Quality learning programmes are based on the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whãriki.
