The Learning Space - Belmont

The foundation to The Learning Space philosophy is born from relationships; equal partnerships between children, caregivers, whanau and community and the environment. These relationships are established on the culture of kindness, through caregiving moments and our daily interactions. Children are valued as free and equal human beings who are at all times allowed to tune into their bodies and into their play. Children are supported to develop and explore in their own time and at their readiness. Through our everyday environment we offer each child the ‘known’ through consistency, taking time and reciprocal communication. Our teachers role model the centre values within their practice; their journeys enriched with passion and joy as they learn alongside one another. This empowers the child to fulfil their rights for expression in many different ways, creating opportunities to discover their individual identities. Parent and whānau participation is fundamental for future extension of the daily life of The Learning Space, embracing partnership with both local and wider communities and celebrating the rich diversity of the languages and cultural significance that families bring to our everyday experiences. 

“Take care of our children. Take care of what they hear, take care of what they see, take care of what they feel. For how the children grow, so will be the shape of Aotearoa.” – Dame Whina Cooper 

Belmont Learning Space is a purpose built centre located in a residential street in Belmont for 39 children. It opened February 2019 and  slowly filled with the joyful sounds of children. The building is designed along the shape of a whare, a simple shape filled with natural light with two separate age group rooms. 

The vision was to create a beautiful home like centre where relationships are given priority.

The Pipi room for 10 children has a sense of calm, a place where our youngest citizens can naturally unfold and develop. Their natural rhythms allowing for strong relationships to build with their primary caregiver and each other.  

In the Paua room up to 29 children are supported to develop their own theories alongside their peers. Learning to collaborate and listening to other perspectives while working with open ended and natural materials.  The team is there to support and guide the children through their daily investigations by thoughtful questioning, considered provocations. The Paua room is filled with light and is connected  to the garden with large sliding doors and a deck.

The educators daily practice is underpinned by the values of respect, trust, collaboration, joy and wonder which are interwoven into the centre philosophy, culture and beliefs.

Raphael House Kindergarten

The Kindergarten at Raphael House stands at the gateway to our hillside site, in the original parent built building. We have three groups of children led by experienced teachers who have trained both in the state and Steiner sectors. Each group holds children between 4 to 6 years of age. In a homelike atmosphere, where food is prepared by all who wish to take part.The care of the classroom is the joint responsibility of child; parent and teacher. The children thrive on a daily rhythm of activity. Each teacher has an assistant, often someone in teacher training. These two adults work in close harmony and together strive to be vital and worthy role models for the children. This is especially important at this time when, children learn so deeply out of imitation.

At a Rudolf Steiner kindergarten, the curriculum is play based. The kindergarten rooms are very beautiful. The materials and toys that are available are all natural -and of an open ended nature. This means that everything may be used for imaginative play. Imaginative play, is the pre-curser for cognitive learning, which ideally begins in the child’s seventh year [class one].

A lovely bush environment surrounds our Kindergarten at Raphael House. The children are able to observe native birds, the growing of vegetables and flowers and the process of composting. We have pets to care for and are lucky to have a school site that allows us to take walks through natural bush within the school grounds.

The Rose Centre Community Pre-School

Our centre is a warm and loving environment where tamariki and whanau feel a sense of belonging. Value is placed on the relationships that will be formed and we acknowledge the importance of these as you embark on this journey with us. Our friendly kaiako are dedicated in their efforts to provide a safe and caring learning environment for tamariki incorporating Te Whãriki, the NZ Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. Our approach is a play based environment where tamariki learn through active exploration of the preschool environment with opportunities to build relationships / friendships with their peers. Through play tamariki learn to make sense of the world around them, develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. We value respectful relationships with tamariki and support their social skills through positive guidance. Kaiako foster their independence and provide them with challenges to build their problem solving skills and capabilities as learners. We follow the interests and needs of our tamariki placing a high importance on their holistic wellbeing, as well as supporting their cognitive development, creative and physical skills. We pride ourselves on a low teacher ratio which allows for high quality care with increased one-on-one interaction with each tamaiti. It enables us to operate with small group sizes and provide quality learning experiences for all our tamariki. We provide an open and independent tamaiti initiated programme that fosters a sound transition to school. The Preschool utilises an e-portfolio system as well as a physical portfolio to document learning and experiences for each tamaiti. Storypark is an APP that can be easily downloaded and was created to “help every child to fulfil their unique potential, by connecting and empowering the community around them.”
