About Papa Kāinga

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.

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.
