Tararua REAP is a “First Stop Education Shop” providing educational services to the region. We operate from Woodville to Norsewood, and from the ranges on the west to the coast on the east.


Our Early Childhood service encourages rural families to access early childhood education for their children. We work alongside Play Centres, Kindergartens, Playgroups, Kōhanga Reo, and Childcare centres.


Tararua REAP works in Primary and Secondary mainstream schools, as well as Kura Kaupapa Māori to collaborate with educators, students and whānau for the purpose of creating lifelong learning success.
