Country Kidz embraces a natural, rural environment nurturing kaitiaki through wider whānau connections to create life-long learners.


Country Kidz is a rural, mixed age early learning centre nurturing the learning and development of future kaitiaki.  We provide a welcoming environment that embraces holistic development through play-based, child-led learning.  A strong sense of turangawaewae gives tamariki the freedom to explore, investigate, and learn from where their interests and urges take them.  This provides a pathway that inspires inquiring minds, problem solving, resilience, and a love of learning.  

We are a passionate teaching team open-minded to tamariki learning styles and responsive to individual needs and aspirations.  To extend development our teaching team provide positive guidance, role modelling, and opportunities for our tamariki to further their learning goals and ambitions. 

We value the authentic relationships we build with parents and whānau - connection to the community we provide for is at the heart of everything we do.  Through these relationships we are able to understand and value the unique whakapapa and kaupapa our tamariki bring with them.
