"The individual and the group needs of the children are met with flexibility and spontaneity in a safe, secure and loving environment. Children are respected, valued, nurtured and given opportunity to excel. Children are empowered to be confident and capable individuals, proud of their heritage, language and culture. The unique place of Maori as Tangata Whenau is acknowledged and respected. We also celebrate the diversity of Aotearoa and will assist the children to appreciate and understand the cultures that are included in our society".
Play is the foundation of our philosophy and programme
Play is how children begin to understand and make sense of their world
That loving and caring relationships are responsive to children’s needs
and form the basis for teaching and learning
Our pedagogy is inspired by Te Whariki, Gerber, Pikler and Virgotsky Bronfenbrenner
