ACG Parnell Early Learning School

A world-class early learning school

Building on the outstanding reputation of ACG Parnell, we have just opened our new early learning school where children aged three months to five years can get a head start in life and gain the essential building blocks for future learning.

Key features

  • A structured learning programme inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy
  • Focus on ensuring your child is ready for primary school
  • Expert early childhood teachers
  • Centrally located with modern, purpose built facilities
  • In-house catering will provide nutritious meals and fresh healthy snacks
  • Priority entrance into our primary school*
Confident and involved learners
We provide flexible, open-ended activity-based experiences to ensure all our students become confident and involved learners. Their learning is often in the form of projects so children have opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesise, question and discuss to clarify their understanding.
Every space within the early learning school has been carefully created to stimulate a child’s imagination so they can discover new skills and interests under the safe supervision of our teachers.

A positive foundation for learning
We encourage children to develop a love of learning at a young age by creating opportunities for them to explore, experiment, solve problems and express themselves as individuals.
Our learning programme is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy and the New Zealand Early Childhood curriculum, Te Whariki. This structured approach, which includes specialist music teaching, will ensure children are well prepared for the next stage of their educational journey – primary school.

A world-class environment

The early learning school has been custom designed to create a physical environment that encourages curiosity and enjoyment.
The large central play area forms the hub of the school and encourages interaction among students, offering children the opportunity to develop oral language skills while nurturing social relationships.

Smooth transition to primary
Our expert teachers maintain a rich classroom environment where students are challenged to learn and explore to ensure their readiness for school. Children are also taught that respect for everyone else is important.
Early Learning students will have priority entrance* into ACG Parnell’s primary school.

Te Ako o te Tui Early Childhood Centre - Grafton

Te Ako o Te Tui is embedded within the unique multi-cultural context of Aotearoa New Zealand, acknowledging Māori as Tangata Whenua and honouring the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We embrace and celebrate cultural, social and linguistic diversity. As an Early Childhood Centre within the University of Auckland, we share a vision to create a Centre with both a national and international presence.

Our priority is to create a caring and aesthetic environment where the language, spirituality and culture of all children is respected; each child is affirmed as an individual. Within our setting, we promote collaborative relationships between Tamariki, Whānau and Kaiako. The environment for our youngest children is nurturing and responsive (Maanakitanga).

We encourage and foster the love of life-long learning within a safe, secure, warm and loving environment where children’s physical, social, intellectual, emotional and spiritual well-being are valued and nurtured.

Quality educational provision, leadership, teaching and learning are supported by effective governance and support (Tangata Whenuatanga).
