Chrysalis Room

Rūma Raukatauri

Welcome to the Chrysalis room. This area is designed for children mostly aged from 18 months to 3 years depending on their comfort, learning and development.

Children’s needs and routines will be individually met so that continuity between home and day care 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 not an issue. Children can explore both indoor and outdoor freely and safely. Educational experiences are planned and implemented in a way that will engage each child.

A healthy rolling morning/afternoon tea is provided, as some children’s needs are different. Children will have supervised access to the refrigerator which will contain their lunch boxes, this gives them a sense of responsibility and manaakitanga (caring) for their belongings.

Once they are ready, they move up into the Butterfly Room, Te Rūma Pūrerehua.
