Ruahine Kindergartens

Ahimate Reserve

Riverdale Kindergarten


The magical place of Ahimate Reserve is part of Riverdale Kindergartens harpori and is well explored by our tamariki as we visit our special taonga every fortnight.

Our tamariki are learning about what it means to be a kaitiaki, by picking up rubbish or caring for the environment.  We have planted trees, created willow pods and collected resources for our creativity.  It’s a great place to explore the natural environment, which creates curiosity and a sense of wonder.  Each visit is very different and new discoveries are made both by our tamariki and Kaiako.

This is a magical place that is embedded into our philosophy as we learn together to care, to share and to embrace.
