Anglican Education Centres

The Anglican education centres in our community include Waiapu Kids for early childhood education and St Matthew’s Primary for students from Years 1 to 8 inclusive.

Waiapu Kids


Waiapu Kids St Matthew’s is an early childhood education centre in Hastings for children 0 – 5 years of age. We provide our children with quality care, giving them a pathway of learning to transition to school, incorporating culture, learning and play.

Waiapu Kids is part of Anglican Care Waiapu (ACW), an social services organisation with the teaching philosophy and belief that each child is unique, created in the image of God, and that Jesus showed a special care and respect for tamariki.
