This RFP includes full details of the information required from providers/organisations who wish to be considered as the preferred provider.
Awapuni Kindergarten has been operating from the Awapuni School site, however it has recently closed the service due to roll decline. This has opened up the opportunity for another service provider to offer an early learning provision from the building.
