Whānau comments:

“We enrolled our son at Tī Kōuka recommendation of a friend, and I’m so pleased we did! Janine and the team are amazing. Our son rare genetic condition and they treat him like a little super hero; he loves kindy and has absolutely flourished since starting at Tī Kōuka. The resources available to the children are ever-changing – there’s always something new to engage them. He is lucky to have such fantastic support at this crucial stage of his life.”

“My daughter loves going to Tī Kōuka Kindergarten. Since being there she has learnt so much and the teachers there are very welcoming and helpful through all milestones the children go through with lots of support.”

“Having my 9-month year old in Ruma Pepe has made returning to work so much easier as the teachers are so warm and welcoming and are so passionate. I am thoroughly enjoying being able to read about his learning journey and be a part of it so easily on Educa.”

“A beautiful space for our tamariki to learn and talented staff who do an outstanding job,  A place where cultures and family members are accepted and supported in the best interests of the tamariki.

I feel blessed to have had the continuity of care here.

Thank you all so much for everything you do every day.”

“I love how Tī Kōuka Kindergarten has a vested interest in each child’s individual needs and in doing so help them grow into their own little person with their own personalities. Axel has full support with all his needs and as a parent, I couldn’t be more pleased with his growth into the schoolboy he is about to become.”
