“I am absolutely delighted to be writing a testimonial for Waimataitai Kindergarten, I could not speak highly enough of the staff, and the community that supports them. I currently have 2 children at Waimataitai Kindy, both with very different personalities, yet I have found the teachers to be very supportive and used different strategies to ensure that both children are reaching their potential. The Kindy is situated in a beautiful park setting, with a well equipped and challenging outdoor play area. Inside there are plenty more exciting learning environments for the children to explore. I can honestly say both my children have flourished at Waimataitai Kindy. They are more confident learners and they feel a true sense of belonging.
I feel fortunate that our daughters are a part of Waimataitai Kindergarten. I will be recommending and have done so already.”
“After visiting many childcare providers in Timaru we found Waimataitai kindergarten to be the best fit for our family. Waimataitai kindergarten has opened its doors to our family and extended family and graced us with their fabulous teaching team and curriculum. They have given our children the best stepping stone start into the big world of education. Their continuous growth within our community has enabled our children to develop with the key skills to establish the best beginning with their learning. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an early childhood provider and we will be forever grateful with the educational compass they have given our family.”
