Education Programme

He taonga te mokopuna, kia Whāngaia, kia tipu, kia rea,

A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to flourish.

Te Whāriki reflects changes in the early learning context, including the diversity of New Zealand society, contemporary theories and pedagogies.  It provides clear and empowering learning outcomes, makes explicit links to The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and positions our children as citizens, learning how to learn in a fast changing and globally connected world.  It supports the work of Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako enabling the learning success of every child.


Busy Bodies Outdoor playThe visiting teachers/kaiako and educators in our early childhood education service weave together the Te Whāriki principles and strands, in partnership and collaboration with children, parents, whānau and community, to create a curriculum that emphasises the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions that support lifelong learning.

Our expectation is that, in their early years, children will experience a curriculum in our service that empowers them for their journey.
