Our centres vision is to be at one with child, whānau and community. We have a beautiful learning environment and create special spaces that spark interest and curiosity for our children. We believe children learn in their own time and at their own pace, (ā tōna wā) and follow their lead to support them in their learning journey.
Our centre is a place where families are always welcome. We value the diverse cultures of our children, families and staff and work together with families to celebrate and acknowledge the values and traditions. Te Ao Māori and Tikanga practices are woven throughout our bicultural curriculum.
We believe imagination and creativity is the source of all human achievement. Children at our centre lead their learning and have the freedom to explore, take risks and challenge themselves. We take the lead from children's interests and extend their learning, developing their curiosity and enthusiasm to learn.
