CURRICULUM

Te Whāriki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum guides and inspires our work. We are committed to and passionate about ongoing learning, so we enrich our thinking and practice with the approaches of Reggio Emilia, Research In Education (RIE), current theory and Magda Gerber.  We believe children’s learning is fostered through a socio-cultural, emergent curriculum and value self-initiated investigations, experimentation, social competence, creative expression, and foundation skills for literacy and numeracy.   We are committed to a bicultural approach and the unique place of Māori.
