Our philosophy

Hui hui mai, kite ako tahi, hei tipu tahi, ia tātou, tātou katoa –

We meet together, to learn and to grow, all of us.

Social Skills

Children will develop social skills, enabling them to initiate and maintain relationships with others.  These skills will include (but will not be limited to) being kind, compassionate and friendly.


Children will develop knowledge, understanding and sills to be respectful of people and the physical environment with a focus on the natural environment.


Children will develop the courage and confidence to try new things and understand that failing is simply an opportunity for learning.


Children will be encouraged to take responsibility for themselves, the well being of others and the physical environment.

Bicultural and Multicultural Curriculum

Children will celebrate all cultures and develop a positive view of diversity.  This will include appropriate implementation of the national early childhood curriculum with the emphasis on developing knowledge around the bicultural context of New Zealand.

Infants and Toddlers

Infants and toddlers will develop at a pace that is appropriate for each individual learner.

Literacy and Mathematics

Children will develop knowledge, skills and a love for literacy and mathematics through engagement in meaningful context.
