“Where children grow to their full potential”


Pohutukawa Kindergarten is a small private kindergarten that opened in July, 2007. We cater for 2-5 year old children, offering a range of sessions throughout the school term.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is an individual with unique strengths, interests and character. We will endeavor to support each child and their family/whanau to grow to their full potential
