Our holistic child care programme is rooted in New Zealand’s early learning framework – Te Wharaki. It is designed to meet the development needs of each child and nurture them as individuals. Learning opportunities are paired with purposeful child care teaching strategies to support build upon your child’s existing skills and develop new ones.
We make learning fun and construct it through play. Exploration and investigation are central to our child care programme for every age and stage, encouraging each child to be an active participant in their learning.
Ours is an emergent curriculum where children are given a voice and the power to make decisions regarding their play, learning and social interactions. This empowers them to build confidence and resilience while teaching them to be kind, civil and collaborative. These are the foundation blocks for their futures. Get in touch to find out about emergent curriculum.
Catering for children between the ages of 0 and 2 years, we have a high teacher to child ratio to ensure your child gets the individual attention they need. The focus at this stage is to build trusting relationships that form the basis of early learning. We move to the rhythm and beats of our babies and toddlers through the day as they explore our stimulating indoors, wander through the purpose-built outdoor area or wind down in the sleep room for a nap. Sharing learning stories is important for us – we love telling you all about how brilliant your baby is!

The wonder years from 3 to 5 when your child develops emotional and language skills. They learn to make friends, share and are generally bursting with imagination. When they first arrive in this room, they are helped by a “buddy” (an older child) to help settle quickly into their new environment. Our curriculum supports their development into individuals with ideas of their own about the world around them. Structure is introduced into the day and each day is filled with stimulating activities to build on their skills and prepare them for transitioning into the primary school environment.
