Early Childhood Centre in Wellington: Kakapo Kids


to Kakapo Kids Early Childhood Centre, Te Aro, Wellington

At Kakapo Kids we understand the needs and interests children have at different ages. Our custom-built outdoor environment provides the perfect space for children to interact while also allowing for age-appropriate separate areas.

Our skilled teaching team creates a family-like environment by committing to the tuakana-teina concept, whereby older and younger children benefit from playing and learning together.

Kakapo Kids boasts a diverse teaching team dedicated to your child’s learning and development. With 15 years experience in Wellington, Head Teacher Jan Tromp is deft at drawing the best out of her teaching staff and leads a programme that is relevant, innovative and caters to all children’s needs.
