Our philosophy

We realise that a strong sense of self-esteem in early childhood is fundamental to coping with the challenges of life and feeling worthy of success and happiness. Consequently, our endeavour, at all times, is to promote teaching practices that uphold children’s dignity and nurture their sense of self-worth.

We embrace Te Whāriki, the early childhood education curriculum, and the role it plays in growing competent and confident learners. Our programme is tailored to empower children to become questioners, problem solvers, risk takers and decision makers who lead their learning through exploration and discovery.

We respect the natural developmental progress of the individual child and practice care-giving routines that are responsive and patient. We are committed to establishing respectful reciprocal relationships within the community of learners and embracing the cultural, spiritual and lifestyle diversity that constitute the fabric of our centre.
