"Heart – early childhood teaching is not just a job, but part of one's DNA"
We provide a natural play based learning environment where kaiako value process over product, hands on real experiences, uninterrupted play and spontaneous learning for tamariki. They have opportunities to build on the concepts of Ako and Tuakana Teina relationships, encompassing learning through reciprocal communication with adults and peers. Social competency is valued for promoting independence and self-confidence within the kindergarten environment.
Kaiako are facilitators who notice, recognise and respond to tamariki; their interests, play, exploration and learning. Kaiako implement strategies from the Incredible Years programme such as support and guidance; role modelling; praise; and encouragement for all akonga.
