Our philosophy

We believe that children gain a sense of being cared for and continuity when all the adults in their life work closely towards common goals. Therefore, Whanaungatanga (relationships with each other, children, whanau and community) is at the core of our curriculum.

Waiho i te toipoto, Kaua i te toiroa.
Let us keep it close together not far apart.

We aspire for our children to develop self-awareness, respect for people and the environment, confidence, communication skills, independence and resilience.
