A little about us

Welcome to Busy Bees Silverdale Central, where we embrace Reggio Emilia-inspired philosophy to cultivate curious minds! We take great pride in providing a safe and empowering environment for tamariki to learn and grow. Our centre features six classrooms specifically designed for different age groups, fostering Tuakana/teina relationships and engaged tamariki. Our focus is empowering tamariki to direct their learning while ensuring they feel supported and safe. We offer diverse open-ended and natural resources to encourage teachable moments and create happy, learning-focused experiences.

Our Fern room (Ages 0 - until walking confidently) is based on building loving, respectful and trusting bonds, our kaiako work closely with families to understand cues and develop a routine that supports children’s natural rhythms. The RIE philosophy underpins our teaching philosophy where every tamariki is treated authentically.  When tamariki are ready to progress, they will head into the Nikau room (when they are walking confidently - 2 Years), and utilise sensory play, outdoor exploration, music, and movement to create a fun, interactive atmosphere whilst maintaining a focus on the love and care that infants need to thrive.

The Kowhai room (Ages 2 - around 2.5 Years) is designed to help our tamariki balance the desire to be independent with the need to be nurtured and cared for through rituals throughout the day. Our next room is Manuka (2.5-3.5 Years), where our kaiako support the unfolding autonomy of the older tamariki to encourage the child’s emergent personality to blossom.

Our Pohutukawa room (3-4 Years) supports the tamariki with social and emotional competence at a time when they are ready to engage in meaningful play with others. The Kauri room (4-5 Years) is where tamariki start to become more aware of their upcoming transition to school, our resources are reflective of the medium’s children will be using at school. Kaiako observe and converse with children to develop projects based on their interests.
