Our Philosophy

  • Respectful and nurturing relationships form the basis of all interactions and practices. 
  • Children learn through play in a positive, predictable yet challenging environment. The environment supports their sense of self esteem, helps them develop a love of learning and builds their confidence to take risks.
  • Our programme is influenced by a Reggio Emilia approach.
  • There is a balance between intentional and emergent learning activities.
  • We are committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi in our practice and we embrace cultural diversity.
  • We value parents and whānau as first teachers of their children and we view strong partnerships with family/whānau as vital to our practice.
  • We are passionate about caring for our natural environment and we encourage sustainable practices.
  • We promote healthy lifestyles through regular physical activity and healthy eating habits.
  • We scaffold children’s growing independence through developing their self-help and self-care skills.
  • We believe that teachers and learners can also be learners and teachers and we encourage tuakana-teina relationships.
