Whenuakite Country Kids opened in July 2002, as a licensed and charitable not-for-profit Community owned centre.
It is situated opposite Whenuakite School, in a rural setting, 25 minutes' drive south of Whitianga and 15 minutes' drive north of Tairua.
The centre is licensed for 39 tamariki, aged from birth to 6 years old, and has separate areas for
Pre-schoolers (Kererū Room) and Infant/Toddlers (Tūī Room).
We are extremely fortunate, to have 2 large north facing outdoor environments for ngā tamariki to explore.
We are open from 8 am - 4 pm,
Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
During the July school holidays, WCK closes
for the first week only, re-opening and
operating as normal for the second week.
The Christmas/New Year break is approximately
3 weeks long. Dates vary for this each year.
