Community Kindy Naenae
Providing a hub of learning and fun in the Naenae Community
Located at 244 Naenae Road, adjacent to Rata street school, Community Kindy Naenae are proud of our purpose built centre and provide awesome opportunities for children and their whanau to learn.
We have a close relationship with Rata Street and Naenae Primary Schools which sees our children regularly visiting the schools to foster the Tuakana-teina relationships between school children/older siblings and our kindy children. This allows the children to familiarise themselves with the school environment and supports smoother transitions to school.
We are at the heart of our community, we go on regular walks around the local area, ensuring we are a part of what is happening locally and invite community role models into our kindy to share their knowledge with the children.
Our team of passionate teachers are as diverse as the children who we are privileged to spend our days with. Nurturing the different cultures here at Community Kindy Naenae is important to us as we strive to uphold cultural practices and inspire the children to be proud of their heritage. We celebrate various language weeks alongside the local primary schools, learning cultural dances, exploring cultural foods, and engaging in cultural learning experiences.
We value our children and whanau, providing them with a home away from home. We encourage and welcome whanau to be a part of their child/ren’s learning journeys and encourage them to work alongside their children and teachers to provide children with quality education, care and learning outcomes.
Exciting learning opportunities happen for children all day, every day as we provide experiences that the children are interested in, going above and beyond to ensure we seek the appropriate resources to extend the children’s learning and encourage them to become curious thinkers…. See some of our great learning moments in our stories below……

We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

“When Niyanth started kindy a couple of months back, I was very much worried about him but with in a few days he started settling and started loving being there..don’t know from where to start thanking you all… thank you all so much for your patience with Niyan, for every tear you wiped, for holding my little boys hands so gently,for all the stories you have told, for your tender heart, for peaceful naps, morning cuddles, for being kind and fair, for teaching him many thoughtful words and for all the sweet things that you did to shape my little one these last two months… thank you for being there in place of me.. I’m so grateful..and I’ll always be…couldn’t thank enough …. surly he will miss all you love and cuddles.”
