About us and Our Programme

Our vision is for children to experience conversations and hear the words and ideas that will support them to see themselves as learners.  Our environment provides for a rich range of experiences including technology, gardening, cooking and physical play.  We have an art studio and a newly established bush area.  We want to grow children’s social competency in an environment that honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi based practice. 

 

Kotahitanga time each morning offers children the opportunity to become confident in understanding and using tikanga and te reo Māori.  This time celebrates children’s uniqueness and builds a sense of belonging. 

 

We hold the top Healthy Heart Award: Pā-Harakeke.  We support children and families with positive transitions to school.

 

 

SESSION TIMES

 

Monday to Friday:   8:30am - 2:30pm

 

 

Our philosophy is for children to view themselves as competent and confident learners in an environment that is empowering, respectful, fun and innovative, where children learn to successfully work together.  Teachers will challenge and support children to think it through, try again, problem-solve and take risks.  The mana of each child will be upheld.  Children will be nurtured through our interest in their home culture.
