Our Philosophy:

We aim to provide high quality early childhood education and care where love and respect are hallmarks of our daily lives. The physical and emotional wellbeing of all children is our guiding principle.

We strive to create an environment where children flourish and develop a passion for exploration and learning. We involve children in the decisions that concern them and we consider their perspectives, while recognising that the learner and whānau cannot be separated. We regard education as a process where children, whānau and Kaiako work together to build values and dispositions for learning. We believe in the arts as an essential language for children’s development as they learn to get along with others, express their individuality and respect diversity through many cultures and abilities.

We recognise Māori as the first people of Aotearoa New Zealand, deliberately weaving te reo and tikanga Maori into our daily practice.

We live and work by the following values:

  • Manaakitanga: trust, sincerity, equity
  • Wānanga: enthusiasm for learning and discovery
  • Whanaungatanga: meaningful and reciprocal relationships
  • Ako: children and teachers bring knowledge with them from which all are able to learn

We acknowledge Te Whāriki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, as the framework that guides our practice. We aim to provide a peaceful, calm and consistent atmosphere that gives children a sense of security and comfort, as they become leaders in their play.
