Otatara Preschool is a semi-rural purpose-built preschool located in Otatara, we are a five-minute drive to Invercargill central city, SIT and close proximity to Southland Hospital.
Our centre incorporates four indoor learning areas and two separate outdoor play spaces. The large spacious grounds feature an exciting locally designed and crafted playground, reflecting many aspects of the Otatara area. This provides an environment to challenge tamariki and to inspire imagination, exploration, and creativity.
We make a difference, and love what we do. We value the partnership between kaiako, tamariki, whanau and our community. Whanau is at the heart of everything we do, these relationships extend to our local community where we work closely with our local school.
We focus our learning environments around the values of whanaungatanga, manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga. Team members are like whanau, fun, passionate, professional, and work as a whole team.
