Our Centre Vision & Values (Pou Whakahaere)

Working in partnership for the love of the child

mahi i roto i te mahi ngātahi mo te aroha o te tamaiti

To provide children (tamariki) with the opportunity to learn and develop holistically (kotahitanga) within our Montessori focused environment. To provide a safe, nurturing place for children to flourish physically, academically and spiritually (hauora). Foster in children a compassion and respect for others, truthfulness, kindness, responsibility, harmony and co-operation (manākitanga) through meaningful relationships with others (nga hononga). Our teaching and learning practices will promote positive learning outcomes for all children – Tikanga Whakaako. Consistently strong teaching practices will underpin our 4 Core Values of Individuality, Inquisitiveness, Inclusion and Independence. These Core Values will be reflected throughout our centre and curriculum.

Our Commitment

Unique…that’s what you are! That’s what your child is. Every one of our children and their amazing families is treated as unique, whether it be their culture, language, needs or aspirations.  We make sure we really do get to know everyone as individuals. We can best support you and your child when we get to know you better and develop a successful meaningful partnership to provide your child with an integrated and consistent approach to their learning and development. We are actively committed to every child and their whānau feeling connected and involved in the life of our centre and feeling a strong sense of community and belonging.

The Children’s Corner

We will offer children a comprehensive curriculum where they can thrive as socially competent, independent thinkers with a lifelong love of learning.

We believe in a balanced approach to preschool education with an emphasis on growing happy, stimulated children whose natural curiosity can flourish
