Children love to discover and what better way to explore our world than through fun, play and interaction. For all children, the transition to school is a challenging one so we nurture a love of learning to ensure this journey is enjoyable and rewarding.
Our 'towns' are a daily hive of activity and are divided into groupings with children of similar ages. All activities interweave into each child's learning journey.
Children take part in projects designed to extend their learning and cognitive processes.
The goals and learning outcomes of Te Whariki are integral to our daily activities, ensuring children gain a strong cultural awareness and appreciation of their place in society.
The early childhood curriculum includes daily activities according to the age and development of each child. These include creative play, language, music, books and story telling, dramatic or fantasy play, manipulative play, construction, physical activity, life skills, character development, recognition of colours, shapes, pre-reading, pre-writing and school preparation.
Nursery from birth - 2 years
Toddler from 2 years - 3 years
Pre-school from 3years - 5 years
As an extension to the daily programme, the pre-school children often go on field trips. These are an important part of the programme and are thoroughly enjoyed by the children.
