PHILOSOPHY

Magic Garden is a place where relationships matter.  We look to develop reciprocal relationships embracing families & whānau.  Valuing the wealth of knowledge our families bring and share, and we join them in partnership to enable children to grow and reach their full potential.  We value the multiple cultures in our community and respect and celebrate children's cultural heritage & identity.

Our environment is designed to empower children, be respectful, unhurried, peaceful, safe & secure.   We believe children enjoy, learn through, making decisions, working together, problem solving, and leading their own learning.  We value making time to listen, supporting children to know themselves and become increasingly independent.  We treasure each child’s unique gifts, curiosities, passions and potential.  We view children as life-long learners, capable of contributing knowledge and understandings as global citizens.

We value an aesthetically pleasing environment full of natural and cultural resources reflective of our wider community. We value regularly dialogue with our community and enjoy sharing innovative ideas and practices.

He aha te mea nui o te ao?

He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!

What is the most important thing in the world?

It is people! It is people! It is people!
