“Ko te reo Māori te reo o te Manawa”

We provide positive learning opportunities alongside and in partnership with whānau, hapū and Iwi.

Our daily programme is delivered in te reo Māori and includes age appropriate science and technology activities that engage and inspire tamariki.

You do not need to be fluent in te reo Māori for your tamariki to attend Puna Manawa. All tamariki are welcome!

Kia ora e te iwi

On behalf of the Taumata Board, it is with great pleasure we advise we have had notice from the Ministry of Education that the licence for Puna Manawa is reinstated (to provisional licence) from Monday 2 December.

We acknowledge we have some mahi to complete before we open the doors and welcome tamariki and whānau, and look forward to resuming operations very soon. As part of that mahi we are excited to welcome Erana Lacey back as our ECE lead and also acknowledge the support of a number of other highly respected early childhood education experts.

A very big thanks to everyone involved.
Nei te mihi ki a koutou.
