Education Curriculum

We provide a play based curriculum within a safe and challenging environment. We are a well resourced centre with a wide range of resources, equipment, and experiences to meet the physical, intellectual, social and language needs of infants, toddlers and young children.

Our programme reflects the goals and strands of Te Whariki, the Early childhood Curriculum for NZ. We believe the wider world of family and community is an integral part of the early childhood curriculum. We greatly value parents, whanau, and wider community contributions to our programme.


Whenuakite Country Kids is a non for profit, licensed and chartered Early Childhood Centre and an Incorporated Society run by a governance committee (consists of parents and staff from the centre and local community members).


Centre Supervisor

The centre supervisor is the link between parents, children, staff, management committee, Ministry of Education, other early childhood services, local schools and the wider community. Please fell free to talk to the management committee about any queries, concerns or suggestions that you may have.
