Statement Of Philosopy

Elmwood Preschool

Our Preschool recognises the importance of having a strong commitment to the bi-cultural heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand and this is clearly evident in our policies, practices and procedures.

We develop authentic partnerships with families/whanau and community based on relationships which foster honest communication, trust and respect.

We believe the role of the teacher is one who actively plays with children, a person who expands children’s thinking skills and genuinely engages with each child.  We believe the best teacher is one who has a passion for the profession, is open to learning and has a willingness to keep him/herself up to date with the current theories of early childhood.  This teacher sets realistic boundaries so that children feel safe and secure.

We know the importance of ensuring each child is emotionally, socially, culturally and physically secure within the preschool environment.

Our Preschool is a child-centered place: a place where it’s great to be small.  A place where children are allowed to be children; they can take risks, have fun,  embrace challenges and have the freedom to express their thoughts and emotions.

We want children to be active learners who are intrinsically motivated with an ‘I can do’ attitude.  We encourage children to be independent learners who are curious to explore and make sense of their world.

Te Whaariki (Early Childhood Curriculum) is the key document that guides our teaching practice.   Teachers use this document to plan experiences which ensures positive learning outcomes for children.   We value the development of social skills and the attributes of kindness, respect, caring and building each others self-esteem.

Minnies Preschool and Nursery

Minnies is based in the heart of the Merivale and Strowan community in a beautifully renovated character villa which offers an exciting, welcoming and light filled environment, surrounded by large outdoor play spaces. 

 We provide the very best high quality care and education for our children and their families. Licensed for just 40 children, our smaller numbers allow for an intimate and child centred approach that readily adapts to the learning and needs of each child, with the aim of helping every child to reach their full potential.  

We provided a ‘Home away from Home’ where we create a culture of warmth, care and respect. Responsive, reciprocal and respectful relationships between teachers, children and whanau are at the heart of all our practices and we treasure our commitment to honouring and respecting te Tiriti o Waitangi, and respect and value our multicultural community.  

Our teachers provide opportunities for children to explore a rich curriculum that lays the foundation for a love of learning that inspires critical thought, inquiring minds and creativity. The philosophies of R.I.E and Reggio Emilia inspire and inform our teaching practices, along with free play which is used as a vehicle for learning. Our programme reflects the principles, strands, goals and learning outcomes of our New Zealand early childhood curriculum Te Whariki.   

At Minnies, our experienced teachers are warm, welcoming and fun. They guide our tamariki to engage in challenging experiences and treat all children with respect, providing equal opportunities to ensure your child gets the best start in life.  

Parents love the rich sense of community that we instill within the centre, and our curriculum at Minnies reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. We value input from parents, teachers, whanau, children and our wonderful community.
