What is the most important thing in the world?
It is People! It is People! It is People!
We are a passionate, dedicated and highly skilled team, consisting of three qualified and fully registered teachers, one amazing administrator and two fabulous teacher aides!
We believe that strong authentic relationships based on mutual trust and respect is the foundation for everything we do here. When you walk into our kindergarten you will feel the wairua and aroha, because we are absolutely passionate about nurturing a sense of belonging for children and whanau/family.
Our children thrive in an environment that is inviting and affording, where they stretch all their learning muscles and develop a strong sense of identity. A play based, child driven programme acknowledges and values children as agents of their own learning. The freedom to explore and discover at their own pace, means that learning is unhurried, playful and authentic.
