Our philosophy

Wonder. Explore. Learn.

We believe that it is our role as teachers to provide a welcoming, caring, nurturing and stimulating environment for our children to start on their learning journey.  Where children are able to develop a sense of belonging and security, to enable them to grow into capable, confident and independent lifelong learners. Providing an inclusive environment for all children irrespective of their abilities, strengths and characteristics as we recognise that every child is an individual and must be respected. 

The inclusion of family/whanau and community are an integral part of the positive development of the child and that families and whanau have invaluable information and knowledge about their own child.  We uphold the Treaty of Waitangi and its place and significance in Aotearoa. We work together as a team to support each other in our endeavours.
