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.

A word from our 2021 President
“For the past four years, Paratea Preschool has been a focal pointin the lives of my children and our family. As we prepare to leave the Paratea community, it is gratifying to know that I have been able to work in a team to support the ongoing independence of Paratea as a unique, stand alone kinder by volunteering my time along with other parents on the committee of management.
The individuality and community connectedness of Paratea 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 together closely with staff to create a collaborative and dynamic environment which is then reflected in your child’s day to day learning at Paratea.
The biggest reward is seeing the enjoyment on the children’s faces daily and knowing that we are contributing in an enriching way to their learning environment.
The committee of management meets together once per month, on site or via zoom, and it is a rewarding opportunity for you to connect with current and new families 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!”
