Richard Hudson Kindergarten


1908 A Kindergarten opened in Caversham Presbyterian Church Hall. It later shifted to a City Council Cottage.  In 1926 the Hudson family gifted the building for Richard Hudson Kindergarten as a memorial to their father.

At Richard Hudson Kindergarten we believe in the importance of:

Te Akoranga (Essence of Learning)

Whanaugnatanga (Relationships)

Tikanga Rua (Biculturalism)

By way of these pou (structures) we support children to become autonomous beings through the provision of holistic child driven learning opportunities.  We facilitate the development of positive, respectful relationships between children, whānau, team members and the wider community.  This is encircled within an inclusive environment which demonstartes our committment to the bicultural nature of Aotearo, New Zealand
