Waiapu Kids Te Hapara Whānau Aroha provides quality care and early childhood education in Tairāwhiti Gisborne for pēpi and tamariki up to five years of age. We are open between 8.30am and 3.00pm Monday to Friday.

We are a fee-free service supporting the needs of tamariki and whānau in our community. We offer van runs to children when transport is a barrier to participating in early childhood education.

Our centre promotes the social and emotional wellbeing of all tamariki and their whānau. Tamariki are immersed in fun, authentic learning, and play whilst at our centre.

We offer a range of support services to our whānau through Te Hapara Family Services which is next door to us.

Get in touch with us today to find out more about the warm, nurturing, and professional childcare and play-based learning that your baby, toddler, or young child will receive with us.
