Children | Tamariki

I believe the children are our future

Teach them well and let them lead the way

Show them all the beauty they possess inside

Curious & creative

The main vision of Katoa is that children are naturally open, curious and creative. Sometimes there are distortions or reasons that a child cannot let these qualities flourish.


Katoa focuses on discovering the reasons why the disturbances occur and then by working with the child and his environment, to allow the natural qualities to re-appear. To empower the child so healing and growth can take place.

Integrated approach

Katoa also works with children (and their whanau) with delayed social-emotional development, behavioural problems and children coping with a trauma. Katoa believes in an integrated approach that supports children in different areas of their life.
