Community Kindy Waikite Valley is a community based country centre located in the Waikite Valley which provides education and childcare for the wider Waikite Valley and Ngakuru area. We are located alongside Waikite Valley Primary School and 2kms down the road from the Waikite Hot Pools

We have strong reciprocal relationships with the local farming community taking part in activities both in the centre and in the community. This can be seen with our wide-open outdoor facilities and the pets the children care for. This gives the children a home-away-from-home feel.

Our very strong Be School Ready programme is realised in the close relationship we have with the year one class at the local primary school, with our four-year olds making weekly visits.  We take part in annual events on the primary school calendar including pet day and cross country.

Our passionate and experienced teachers provide a fun and interactive environment that will meet the holistic needs of individual children (emotional, cognitive, physical, social and linguistic). Children’s learning is well documented and transparent, so parents can be part of their children’s journey to competency and independence. 

We have a unique programme on a Friday morning (9.00am – 10.30am) where parents of young children are encouraged to visit and enjoy our fun and stimulating learning environment.

Pop in or give us a call today!
