Our learning environments are safe and well resourced. You will be amazed and delighted with our outdoor spaces. They are large, inviting, stimulating and reflective of our respect for Papatūānuku (the land).
Our professional and fun kaiako (teachers) have a genuine love of teaching and learning. We are very proud of our environment which is set up to support and extend your tamariki learning and development. Within this environment our tamariki mana is recognised and fostered within a responsive curriculum, rich in language and cultural artifacts.
There is a balance between set activities and self choice experiences. We have a variety of excellent developmentally appropriate resources to support your child to learn and develop to their full potential. During the day they will have access to these resources and at other times kaiako will set up specific activities, such as music and painting.
Was great to be invited and able to be involved in the preschool celebration of Matariki. The disco was a great event.
