Our philosophy is our commitment to you - the families and children at our kindergartens - we want the best for your child.

 

We believe that early childhood education is every child’s right in Aotearoa.

It is a powerful legacy for their future and the future of our communities. We believe in children as capable, competent, creative, curious and full of ideas.


We believe in a partnership between families and teachers

This is how we provide the best learning outcomes for your child. We want to work alongside you in encouraging and supporting your child to grow and develop. We have a commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi and support our kindergartens to show this commitment in their everyday teaching practice.


We know that playing and learning go hand in hand for young children.

We can make a difference for children – supporting them on a pathway to lifelong learning. Our teachers will support your child in discovering and exploring a wide variety of experiences as a way of teaching your child the skills they need for life – and to discover that learning is fun.


We are committed to providing the highest quality early childhood experience for you and your family.

We are a team of dedicated and innovative early childhood professionals and managers, committed to providing the highest quality early childhood experience to you and your family, based on Te Whāriki – the national curriculum.


We believe in employing and supporting the best qualified teachers.

We respect our teachers for the educational expertise that they bring to our kindergartens.
