Our philosophy


Children

To provide an engaging, child-centred environment with a wide range of indoor/outdoor learning opportunities that allow children to explore and discover particular and unique interests.

To provide a child initiated play-based programme which helps young children in making physical, cognitive, social, and emotional connections, to develop relationships and build their social competency.

To provide an education and care centre where children are supported and trusted to self-regulate and make confident choices that are appropriate for their own level of readiness.

To provide children an opportunity to understand their own identity whilst developing knowledge and an understanding of the cultural heritages of both parties of the Treaty, through the use of Tikanga and Te Reo throughout the programme.
