About the Kindergarten


Due to  a high demand  for places,  the waiting list at Tai Tamariki  has now been closed to all but staff who work at Te Papa. We thank you for your interest and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


This new kindergarten opened in Te Papa in early February 2010.  The centre operates with up to 30 children, including up to 9 under 2 year olds and with a staff of 12 teachers.  Because the service is principally used by Te Papa staff, flexible enrolment times are developed to reflect the flexi-time arrangements offered in the public sector. 

Te Papa and the Association are committed to providing high quality learning experiences for all young children.
