Our nursery team is passionate about providing a warm, nurturing and interesting environment for every child. We even have twinkling stars in our nursery sleep room!
For the older children, we offer 20 Hours ECE, and we have a great programme that is very flexible where each child’s interests are supported and encouraged. All activities are planned to suit each child’s individual needs and interests and these are used throughout our programming. Our routines are flexible, allowing the children to become completely engrossed in their play and learning.
We offer an excellent, established transition to school Be School Ready initiative. We believe that to effectively guide children into school, both teachers and parent/whanau need to be active participants in the journey. Because of this, we offer an open door policy, where we welcome family contributions at any time. Close relationships and open communication with parents means children’s individual routines are easily catered for within our flexible programme.
We are committed to building strong relationships with our families and our local community in order to enhance your child’s learning experiences. We welcome parents and whanau to join us regularly and introduce the children to the wider world and community around them through regular excursions and in-house centre visits from educational programmes run by our local community.
You don’t need to book an appointment to visit, simply drop by or call us for more information.
