I te tau 1989 i whakatūria ai Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Kuaka e ngā kaimahi me ngā tauira nō Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato.
Kōnei tētahi o ngā Kaiako takitaki ECE Kōhanga reo torutoru noa iho i te ao whānui. E 30 tau kua hipa, kei a Ngā Kuaka tana raihana kia whakahaere i ngā karaehe e 3 hei poipoi tika i ngā tamariki katoa. He mea nui ki a mātou te Whānau o Ngā Kuaka kia tautoko i to tātou hāpori.
Nā reira, haere ai matou ki ngā kaupapa pērā i te Rā Kīngitanga , ki ngā Ahurei Kapahaka, ki ngā kaupapa kohi pūtea me ngā hīkoikoi hoki.
Manawanui ana tō mātou kāhui kaiako ki tēnei kaupapa matapopore: Kia whakaatu rangatiratanga mā te mātaranga i a mātou e whakamahi ana i ngā whanonga pono hei whakatuarā i te tuakiri Māori, i te oranga me te pito mata. E tutuki pai ana mā te kounga e nanaiore ana i a rā kia tū pakari tonu ai tēnei Kōhanga reo nāna nei ngā mokopuna i whāngai.

Staff to Child Ratios
Ngā tau o te tamariki/Kaimahi ratio
Under 2: Kaimahi per 5 pēpi
Over 2: Kaimahi per 8 tamariki
If your baby requires bottle feeding, our kaimahi will record the times and amount consumed for your information. Please note that by law, we are unable to lay babies down with bottles as it is bad for their teeth and ears. Please assist us by providing enough (named) bottles and formula for the day.
Nappies - Kope
Due to the range of sensitivity of our pēpi and in order to keep our Kōhanga Reo affordable, Ngā Kuaka does not supply nappies. If your child wears nappies, please bring 6 nappies to the kōhanga every day. We support sustainability at Ngā Kuaka, so also support the use of cloth nappies.
Food - Kai
Ngā Kuaka believe in fuelling our tamariki with healthy kai so provide healthy snacks in line with our Kai Ora Policy. We ask that parents provide their childs lunch in line with the policy also, such as: sandwiches, fruit, yoghurt, raw vegetables, crackers, cheese, or rice biscuits.
