Indoor Virtual Tour
Bush Kinder – 4 Year Old Program
From May – November our 4 year old groups have the opportunity once a week to explore the Paratea Reserve which surrounds our kindergarten. The reserve provides an ideal learning environment for children to investigate the natural world and feel connected to the land.
AGM 2020 Information
A word from our 2020 President
“What I love about Paratea is how we continue to create a wonderful community year after year. You have chosen Paratea perhaps because of its’ unique identity and ability to function as a stand alone kinder. This individuality could not be achieved without the support of a parent run volunteer committee of management and this is where you can get involved and support our wonderful kinder! Our committee of management works closely with staff to create a collaborative and dynamic environment which is then reflected in your child’s day to day learning.
I have been a part of the committee for 2 years now with next year being my final year at Paratea and I am so proud of what we have been able to achieve as a committee. The biggest reward is seeing the enjoyment on the children’s faces daily and knowing that we are contributing in a wonderful way to their learning environment.
We come together to meet as a committee once per month on site (restrictions allowing!) and it is a great opportunity for you to meet some friends and support our staff, not to mention a fun night out! If you feel you would like to volunteer and give some of your time to your kinder to ensure that we are able to continue to function as a stand alone kinder please get in touch!”
-Elizabeth Bailey, 2020 Paratea Preschool President
