Katoa Kindergarten

Ka oho te wairua, ka matara te tinana, he aroha ki te aroha,  ka ka te rama. When the spirit is awakened, when the body is alert, when the love is unconditional, enlightenment flows. Na Te Rauparaha     

This whakatauki has meaning to us as it was said by one of our chiefs, Te Rauparaha.      

Our kindergarten is based in beautiful Elsdon in Porirua, right in the heart of Ngati Toa iwi.  We are fortunate to be close to our local Marae, Takapuwahia and visit the Marae weekly to read stories, sing songs and just hang out.     

The children at Katoa are part of an inclusive environment that acknowledges the importance of social skills and virtues to support children for lifelong learning.                  

We have a large attractive outdoor space with a garden for herbs and veges, and have further developments planned.     

Katoa Kindergarten supports whanau by offering a playgroup for younger children each day, alongside the kindergarten session.  We also run workshops with topics chosen by parents and whanau.
