We believe in and aspire to create for the children a positive attitude to learning and an environment where they feel comfortable and confident with challenges and learning.
We believe that children need a safe place to express themselves, where they feel they are loved and that they belong.
We believe children deserve our respect and we do this by talking to them about what we are doing and involving them in the daily routines and programmes.
We believe it is important to acknowledge each child’s culture to promote a sense of belonging. As a bicultural country, we acknowledge and promote an understanding of te reo and tikanga Maori and the significance of Maori culture in Aotearoa is nurtured and respected.
We believe children learn through play and we will provide opportunities for this through safe and stimulating indoor and outdoor environments.
We believe it is important to provide a variety of fun learning experiences which are both teacher and child initiated to explore, experiment and discover and to allow time for precious moments when children can dream and create with curiosity and wonder.
Our Centre’s programme philosophy is based on the New Zealand Early Childhood care and curriculum, Te Whaariki.
We believe we are part of a partnership in caring for and educating children.
Children, whanau and teaching teams learn from each other.
Together, you and us.
