Waiau Pa Kindergarten

We are placed in a rural community setting beside Waiau Pa Primary School. We have 30 children attending kindergarten each day. We provide options for 3-hour and 6-hour sessions.

We provide an environment and curriculum that reflects the holistic way children learn and grow with an inquiry-based curriculum. We believe in providing a warm, welcoming environment where there are equitable opportunities to empower children to learn, explore, communicate and contribute, and where their well-being, sense of belonging, and individuality is valued. We value the contribution of family, the wider community, and we support and respect cultural beliefs.

Play and Learn - Karaka West

In response to demand, our new centre at 59 McKenzie Road, Kingseat  caters for both parents who need care for long hours as well as a shorter day programme. 

At Play and Learn we believe that young children need time, space and the right environment, in order to develop a healthy sense of who they are, and as valued members of society.  We believe in “real childhoods” valuing children’s right to play and explore, developing respect, of each other and the environment, self-belief, confidence, competence, curiosity and creativity, emphasising opportunities to explore nature and to understand the wider world.

We achieve this through our incredible philosophy, together with dedicated, experienced, qualified teachers. Additionally, we incorporate amazing natural outdoor environments, designed for play and learning in all-weathers, ensuring children live and learn in healthy fresh air. Much of what children learn can be learnt through and from nature. We are also committed to using recyclable materials to encourage children's creativity, imagination and thought. 

For over 25 years Play and Learn have been noted for our highly qualified experienced teaching team, high teacher: child ratios, parent friendly services and outstanding ERO reports which reflect best practice in ECE. The owner, Jan Beatson places a strong emphasis on high quality teaching combined with nature based learning. Jan brings four decades of ECE experience and has a Master of Education specialising in learning in outdoor environments and language development. Our alumni include numerous pupils who have achieved top academic results and represented New Zealand in sports.
