Steps to Strides Early Learning Centre

Our centre is a home with a huge backyard. This is what makes us special and unique. Your children will feel like they have spent the day at home with people who care about them and enjoy their company and contributions. Our programme is responsive to each child’s needs and interests. The children even plan the menu choosing from their favourite foods. From the youngest to the eldest they are the designers of their play.

Our philsophy

We believe Steps to Strides is a place to stand proud. A place where everyone feels especially empowered. Where everyone is connected and thrives. Every child is a taonga, treasure. They join us with their own strengths, interests, family culture and values. In partnership we contribute our love, knowledge and respect to foster the growth of each child so that their strengths and inherent abilities shine through. Learning is something we highly value. We actively work to inject fun into our everyday experiences, environment and relationships as we create planned and spontaneous experiences that promote the development of resilience, creativity, curiosity, agility, social competence and connectedness, all essential lifelong learning skills.

Our philosophy

At Pascals St Johns we create a respectful environment where the children, parents and teachers are valued. We create a place where everyone feels welcome and we acknowledge the individual cultures within the centre, highlighting the dual heritage of Aotearoa/New Zealand.

We believe children learn through play therefore play is an essential part of our daily routine. We believe that children are unique individuals and we encourage them to express their ideas and working theories.

Opportunities are provided to children to explore their independence to develop the essential skills for life. We provide an environment for children where they can discover new things and revisit old, while building a foundation for lifelong learning. We communicate and demonstrate the limits and boundaries of acceptable behaviour.

Our teachers are professional and approachable. We provide a safe and nurturing environment. The review of our daily practice is ongoing.
