Education Programme

Our educational programme is founded upon the Ministry of Education’s Early Childhood Curriculum – Te Whaarki, and implemented by your primary educator who is responsible for the group of children in their care.  Being the main carer, an important aspect of this is working co-operatively with parents/ whaanau to enable the children to form a secure bond with one educator.

Busy Bodies Outdoor playThe visiting teachers’ role is responsible for assisting you and your child through the settling process, regular visits, and the ongoing education and care of your child.  They also assist the educator in providing resources, prepared environments set up to provide an education foundation for children and to recognise the unique and diverse learning approaches of each child.

We aspire to provide an educationally creative and evolving programme that is fun for the children to learn and develop individually, or within small groups through planning the day’s activities.

Storypark: EPortfolios and Learning Stories- Your child will have their own Profile account set up which allows educator and teachers to send you updates, photos and videos while they work with your child.   Storypark becomes a very special part of your child journey within their early childhood experiences in our service we encourage the sharing of stories and your perspective engaging in children’s learning and development.  This helps educators focus on your child’s unique needs and abilities.  This is a celebration of who they are – sense of self, and all their accomplishments with photos, pictures and stories to treasure.
