What We Do
At Active Explorers Melville we believe children come first in our inclusive and nurturing environment where tamariki become confident and independent learners.
As a team we are committed to providing respectful relationships and building mutual trust through positive guidance as well as role modelling to encourage children’s active leadership to become competent explorers and learners.
We recognise the importance of working alongside whānau to develop greater understanding of each child’s individual routines and developmental needs to ensure all children develop a sense of belonging during their time in our care.
Aotearoa is a multi-cultural country where we respect and encourage all aspects of all cultures and backgrounds. Te Tiriti o Waitangi reflects the unique place Māori have in our community and we respect Māori as tangata whenua. New Zealand is the home of te reo Māori and Tikanga. These values are included and taught in the children’s everyday interactions, experiences and learning.
