Suits and Gumboots Country Daycare was established in Te Kauwhata in 2011 and more recently in Pokeno in 2015. We pride ourselves on our warm and spacious activity spaces that allow the children to explore, create and feel excited about being there. The homely feel to the learning environments gives you a sense of belonging and our relaxed and friendly teachers ensure that you are made welcome from your very first visit. Our outdoor playground space uses natural resources and is an adventure just waiting to be explored.
Feel free to call in, look around and meet our wonderful teams at Suits and Gumboots Country Daycare Te Kauwhata and Pokeno.

We are a contributing school in the village of Te Kauwhata and pride ourselves on our place within the community and the sense of ‘whanau’ and ‘belonging’ that we strongly believe in and demonstrate.
During 2011 our school charter was revised and as a result of this process our new vision and values were developed and continue to be ‘grown’ by staff, students and our valued community.
During 2013 we opened our brand new garden area the ‘Kids Patch’ as well as launching our very own radio station – ‘Listen Up’ 107.2fm. In 2014 we were awarded our EnviroSchool’s Silver award.
At the end of 2015 we were very proud to have constructed our Waharoa. The Waharoa was designed and carved by local Whanau and community and represents and embraces all that our school stands for.
TKP is a progressive school, embracing e-Learning with a range of modern devices as integral tools for supporting and enhancing quality teaching and learning in this 21st Century.
As a staff we are a ‘team’ of learners who, like our students, learn from each other and welcome all opportunities to continue to grow our roles and competencies in these ‘exponential’ times.
Te Kauwhata Primary School is a great place to be!
Thank you, we welcome visits to our school.
