A culture of respect for all people and for the world we live in ...

The principles of respectful practice and the importance of play underpin our teaching. Play is natural, instinctive and spontaneous. We believe in the importance of authentic experiences that are engaging.

We use an emergent curriculum to prepare the environment for children’s play, ideas, thoughts and understanding to be explored. The language of the virtues guide our teaching practices and strengthen our relationships with tamariki.

Children are naturally capable learners and have the right to feel safe. Trusting relationships and responsive caregiving express our value of aroha.

Partner with parents and whanau to ensure children grow their potential ...

Reciprocal partnerships with parents and whānau are essential to children’s holistic development to ensure we grow potential.

Mutual respect and honest communication contribute to high quality outcomes with learners. The diversity of families is celebrated and we reflect children’s cultural heritage. The principles of Tikanga Māori are woven through our curriculum and incorporated in our daily practices.

A peaceful and beautiful environment for all ...

We value an aesthetic, homely and natural environment. We believe our environment fosters creativity, promotes wonder and discovery and encourages children’s natural curiosity and desire to explore and learn.

We are committed to preparing an authentic learning environment so tamariki can be purposeful and investigate at their own pace.
