Central Kids Kindergartens has been providing high quality, accessible and affordable early childhood education and care for 35 years. We operate 48 kindergartens and 8 full day care centres between Whitianga in the North, Taumarunui in the South and Ōpōtiki in the East. Head office is centrally located in Putaruru. The Board of Trustees of the Central North Island Kindergarten Trust govern our registered charitable trust, making decisions that consider the impact for children who are at the centre of all we do – Ko ngā Tamariki te Pūtake. Our goal for children is that they will transition to school as confident, competent learners from their experiences in our kindergartens/early learning centres which inspire active learning and support inclusion.
