Our early childhood curriculum empowers the child to learn and grow
Our early childhood curriculum reflects the holistic way children learn and grow
Family & Community/ Whānau Tangata
The wider world of family and community is an integral part of the early childhood curriculum
Relationships/ Nga Hononga
Children learn through responsive and reciprocal relationships with people, places and things
Through the guidance of qualified and experienced educators, these principles are woven into place with the following strands:
Well-being/ Mana Atua
The health and well-being of the child are protected and nurtured
Belonging/ Mana Whenua
Children and their families feel a sense of belonging
Contribution/ Mana Tangata
Opportunities for learning are equitable and each child’s contribution is valued
Languages and symbols of children’s own and other cultures are promoted and protected
Our curriculum is split into three sections and includes stimulating and well-planned activities to support each child’s learning at each stage. There is a good balance between education and play.
Our activities include play (creative, manipulative, physical, dramatic, theatrical, water, social, and extended), science, maths, reading books, storytelling, construction, cultural activities, life skills, character development, music, dance, performing arts, information technology, and lots more.
Activities are managed according to each stage of development through positive interactions which are facilitated by well qualified and experienced staff.
A holistic approach allows for learning opportunities to occur naturally for each child in every activity and development is focused around individual interests.
