About Us

Oromahoe Kindergarten offers Early Childhood Education for 2 – 6 year-olds. Our rural setting 15 mins south of Kerikeri, 15 mins southwest of Paihia and 25 mins east of Kaikohe, gives children a chance to grow and learn in a secure, beautiful and natural environment.

“The activities of children in kindergarten must be derived directly from life itself rather than being “thought out” by the intellectualized culture of adults. In the kindergarten, the most important thing is to give children the opportunity to directly imitate life itself.” - Rudolf Steiner

Our Vision

“Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love, let them go forth in freedom.”
- Rudolf Steiner


Oromahoe Kindergarten is run by The Bay of Islands Waldorf Education Trust (BOIWET), a trust set up to foster Waldorf or Steiner education in the Bay of Islands.
