Our Story

We are a multicultural centre in the lovely Art Deco City of Napier in a small place called Ahuriri. 

Our infant room is reflective of the Pikler approach.  Primary caregiving from responsive teachers in a calm relaxing environment is clearly visible in our infant room.  Our environments are Reggio inspired with very experienced teachers who work with and alongside the children to support and extend all learning.   

The toddlers and the mini tods have separate classrooms but they come together to play in the lovely outdoor playground.  The three senior rooms all have their own individual rooms but they all play together in their very large playground.  Tuakana Teina relationships where the more experienced teaches the less experienced are encouraged and supported by the teachers.

ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.
