Located only 30 minutes from Auckland's CBD at 26a Farringdon Street, Glen Innes, our kōhanga reo provides quality care, great kaimahi - teacher ratios, Kai hauora - Healthy Heart meals, an outdoor play area and well-designed rooms for children as they grow and develop from babies to 6 year olds.
Te Kōhanga Reo o Puau te Moananui a Kiwa (TKROPUAU) has two separate indoor areas for children, from babies and toddlers to over-twos and pre-schoolers. Outdoors, infants and toddlers have a play space of their own, as well as having access to the large outdoor area.
Infants & Toddlers - 2 years and under - Kōngahungahu (K1)
In the Kōngahungahu (K1) area we've created an environment that gives babies the space to grow, explore and develop. Toddlers can play, learn and create in the spaces provided. Babies and toddlers also have separate sleeping rooms, recognising that babies often need multiple sleeps during a day while many of our toddlers only need one.
Over-Three's - Kōhungahunga (K2)
When they are approximately three years old, children move to the Kōhungahunga area (K2) - a large, well-resourced and engaging space. older children develop the skills they need to become successful learners at higher levels including some formal learning experiences to support their transition to school. Here children are able to engage deeply in play and learning, supported by a team of teachers who undertake in-house kōhanga reo training to extend their learning.
