ABOUT US

Our beautiful Centre is divided between 3 rooms each focused on the particular stage of development of your child..  Each room is led by experienced supervisors who ensure that your child receives the best possible care and education that we can provide.

Magic Garden follows Te Whāriki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, we are strongly influenced by the philosophy and practices of Reggio Emilia and the practices of Magda Gerber/RIE.  These approaches support the valuing of relationships, the use of collaboration, having the environment as the third teacher, encouraging parental involvement, maintaining documentation of children’s learning, having an emergent curriculum, and encouraging the child as a self-initiated learner.
