To empower and educate our tamariki to become successful learners in the 21st Century concerned with Community, Country and Environment.
We, as qualified and motivated educators with a best practice approach to Early Childhood Education offer a firm commitment to work with families and communities in children's education and care by making our children at the heart of what we do. We celebrate and respond to the interests of children respecting individual strengths, keeping alive their natural curiosity and their ability to learn through active exploration.
Through this they will continue to be self-propelled learners with a desire to continue to aquire information as a consequence of ongoing interactions between people and their environment.
We recognise the challenges of the 21st century and promote the attitudes, knowledge and skills that enable children to aquire the dispositions needed to overcome adversity. we achieve this by providing an environment that is treated as a living space, where both planned and spontaneous learning through play happens in tandem, where cultures are celebrated, where children are treated with respect and dignity and children’s holistic development drives our practice.
Our teachers work with the Principles, Strands and Goals of Te Whāriki - He Whāriki Mataranga mo nga mokopuna o Aotearoa - The Early Childhood Curriculum.
