New Ruawai Kindergarten takes shape

The new building development for Ruawai Kindergarten is coming along beautifully with significant progress being made over the summer break on the build, with the driveway and parking areas being completed along with the building foundation and framework.

Significant progress has been
made over summer on Ruawai’s new kindergarten


“The new building which is located next to the Ruawai Primary School and adjacent to Ruawai College on State Highway 12 will create an ‘education hub’ for Ruawai and Kaipara communities” said the Head teacher, Sara McKinley.


“The kindergarten will have the capacity to be licenced for a maximum of 40 children, which will also require the kindergarten to employ more registered and qualified early childhood teachers.


The Northland Kindergarten Association anticipate the opening date of their new building to be early in term two this year although the actual date will depend on the weather and the building programme.


“In the interim, staff at Ruawai Kindergarten plan to hold a massive garage sale which will assist with the purchase of equipment and materials for the new building” said Sara.


Regular updates and photos can be viewed on the Ruawai Kindergarten Facebook page. In the meanwhile, come and visit the kindergarten at 29 Wharf Road, Ruawai. The kindergarten takes enrolments for the waiting list from birth.
