Our philosophy

We see children as lifelong learners and aim to provide them with a nurturing and caring environment for their emotional, social, physical and cognitive development. We incorporate bicultural practices in our centre and also celebrate different cultures. In our Teina/Little Buddies room for under 2s, we practice the primary caregiving philosophy to provide a safe and secure environment for our tamariki. We believe in building positive relationships with children and families and working in partnership throughout their journey of learning and development. We want Active Explorers Blockhouse Bay to be a fun, caring and nurturing place for our tamariki to play and learn!
