Our philosophy

We provide an environment which fosters relationships through confidence and respect through authentic tailored learning opportunities for young children of the 21st century.

Independence: We trust and support children to know who they are as individuals, and to develop the ability to be self-sufficient, to self-organise, to self-motivate and to self-manage.

Creativity: We provide a naturally rich environment that supports children’s imaginative, spontaneous and innovative ideas, where exploration and discovery experiences are valued through an understanding of the importance of overall learning journey.

Resilience: We have authentic teachers that respect children’s ideas and allow children the time and space to think and solve problems for themselves.  This develops the ability to adapt to change and bounce back after setbacks, through the support of children’s temperament, personality and spirit.

Connectedness: We promote partnership with families/whānau through two-way communication, where each child’s culture, aspirations and thoughts are captured in a holistic way.
