Ruahine Kindergartens

Welcome to Somerset Kindergarten

Nau mai haere mai-Welcome to Somerset Kindergarten.


Nestled across the road from Somerset School, our Kindergarten environment has a beautiful outdoor area overlooked by mature trees.  Special to our Kindergarten is the opportunity to explore in a natural environment that consists of a secret forest, a wet and dry rockery river and a working garden.

Here at Somerset we believe children are all leaders in their own right and we endeavour to foster children’s potential through the development of our relationships with whānau.  We have an open door policy whereby families are encouraged to stay, participate in and celebrate their children’s discoveries.  We welcome visitors to come in and see us anytime.

Nāu te rourou, Nāku te rourou, Kia ora ai te whānau

With your contribution and my contribution our whānau will flourish.

What Our Whānau Say

The children have learned a lot. I’m very impressed with all the hard work the teachers do, my children love kindy and all the teachers.”

“Kindy is a chance for my child to venture out ‘on his own’ away from me, gain some independence, experience new things, meet new people, learn lots through play!”

“We love the kindy style of play and learning, interaction with other children and learning skills.”

“My daughter loves kindy. It is the only place she has large group social interactions. The variety of play and chances for language development is invaluable.”
