Matariki Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten

Welcome to Matariki!  Our kindergarten offers early childhood education with a difference. The special character of our kindergarten features:

  • a small group size
  • a calm, quiet, homelike environment
  • a programme and resources that develop children's imaginative play
  • healthy, natural food
  • connecting children with nature through gardening and marking seasonal changes
  • celebrations and festivals

We are at 187 Ruahine Street, Palmerston North (beside Terrace End School).  Sessions run from 8.45am to 1pm, Monday to Friday.  Three, four and five-year olds are fully funded through free ECE.  A playgroup for under threes runs once a week at the kindergarten.

Please drop in and see us - visitors are welcome!  

For information about the events at our kindergarten please see News and Events.

To produce individuals who are able, in and of themselves, to impart meaning to their lives. The aim of Steiner education is to educate the whole child "head, hands and hearts"
