Environment: Teachers promote and actively encourage sustainability and respect for the natural environment and resources.
Relationships: Teachers work in partnership with children and their families/whānau, school and community to create a shared, welcoming environment.
Independence: Teachers promote independence and confidence through joint exploration and participation. Our learning environment is well resourced and challenges children’s problem solving and creative abilities.
Information Technology: Teachers explore with children the technologies of today, researching new ideas to keep up to date with technology and its advances.
