Welcome to our Chrysalis room, Rūma Raukatauri. This area is designed for children mostly aged 18 months to 3.5 years depending on their comfort, learning and development.
Children’s needs and routines are individually met so that continuity between home and daycare is kept at maximum levels and maintained effectively.
In this room children are able to explore through play. There are a lot of resources available, and space is definitely not an issue. Children explore both indoor and outdoor spaces freely and safely. Educational experiences are planned and implemented in a way that engages each child individually.
A healthy morning/afternoon tea is provided. Children have supervised access to the refrigerator which has their lunch boxes, giving them a sense of responsibility and manaakitanga (caring) for their belongings.
Once they are ready, they move up into our Butterfly Room, Rūma Pūrerehua.
