Our Story

Who we are

Papa Kāinga has been derived from a passion, of working with and alongside children. It is this passion that drives us to provide educational experiences in a rich learning environment.

In our home based setting’s, children receive care and education that is calm, predictable and familiar, enabling the educators and the children to develop responsive and reciprocal relationships with one another in a fun environment, set with boundaries, with a educator who cares and has plenty of time to spend with your child.

Because we are a small company, locally owned and operated, we are very hands on and are able to ensure our own personal touch for the children, whanau and educators. Embedded within this is our belief that children learn through relationships. Any experience the child has involves a relationship with people, places or things at some level.
