Learning is Essential – Let's achieve their potential

Our centre provides learning and care from 3 months to 5-years old in age appropriate rooms.

Infant Island: In our Infant Island room our youngest tamariki receive primary caregiving where each child has one ‘primary’ teacher who provides care and connection. Kaiako (teachers) recognise the importance of these foundation months and children’s learning is focused around individual learning and achieving parents’ aspirations. Kaiako believe our infants needs a calm and unhurried environment where children can blossom.

Toddler Jungle: In our toddler’s room we introduce learning through play and set the foundation for cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being. Kaiako promote early language skills and self-help skills among children through daily routines. Parents are involved in their children’s learning through face to face discussions, Storypark and parent teacher interviews.

Little Explorers: The little explorer’s room is for our 3 to 4-year olds and learning is focused around developing social competency and developing a sense of identity and belonging. In this room children learn to share, interact with others and take turns and be kind to their friends. Kaiako encourage and support communication and confidence.
