Welcome to our Butterfly room, Rūma Pūrerehua. This area is designed for children aged 3-5 years based on their comfort, needs and development.
Children’s needs and routines are individually met so that continuity between home and daycare is kept at maximum levels throughout the day and includes a variety of play based learning.
In this room children are able to explore through play while learning skills of every day life. There are a lot of resources and spaces available. Children can explore both indoor and outdoor and do so freely, competently and safely. Educational experiences are planned and implemented in a sense that engages each individual.
A healthy morning/afternoon tea is provided. Children have supervised access to the refrigerator which contains their lunch boxes, this gives them a sense of responsibility and manaakitanga (caring) for their belongings.
Experiences are planned daily and we incorporate a school readiness programme to support the children who will be heading off to school.
