Passion

Philosophy

We provide a rich and broad curriculum to stimulate the holistic manner in which children learn and develop, along with a warm, loving and safe environment that reflects our unique natural surroundings.

Our centre leadership, Kaiako, parents/whānau and community all collaborate and work together as a team with tamariki at the heart of everything we do.

Ko te Tamaiti te Pūtake o te Kaupapa

Our environment compliments the home, giving children, Kaiako, whānau and the community a sense of belonging. We do this by valuing diverse cultures, languages and identities.

We use the environment to enable children to develop wonderment and a sense of responsibility for the living world and knowledge of how to care for it and be sustainable.

He taonga te mokopuna, kia whᾱngia, kia tipu, kia rea
A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to florish.

Te Whariki 2017

Whānau involvement

Each child has ownership of their own profile displayed in the child’s room, available for parents to view and contribute to. We like to encourage family involvement to ensure we have a collaborative approach with the whānau.
