Our centre philosophy.
Children’s wellbeing is our priority and we achieve this through providing a nurturing and engaging environment. We work together in partnership with whanau, tamariki and the community to promote responsive, reciprocal relationships as we believe this is the foundation for learning. The natural environment is an important part of our curriculum.
We enjoy the outdoors in all weather allowing children opportunities to explore and challenge themselves by taking risks. We encourage ākonga (learners) to learn to connect with and care for our environment and each other. We nurture our future generation to respectfully heal and walk the Earth, mindful of the footprint they leave behind.
We believe in fostering an environment which embraces a key teacher framework for developing authentic, trusting, reciprocal relationships between kaiako, tamariki and whanau. Respects and accepts diverse cultures and individuality. Encourages children to take risks, challenge themselves and build social competence in an environment where their interests and strengths are valued. Inspires tamariki to walk softly on the earth and connect with the environment.
