Central Kids Ngātea has relationships with whanau at the forefront of our programme . Our flexible enrolment procedures cater to our farming community. We support families and children with diverse needs to provide them with quality care and education, working closely with support agencies to provide the best learning environment for children. We set up the environment so all children can follow their interests, leading their own learning with support from our qualified teachers.
Our programme based on the NZ Early Childhood Education Curriculum, Te Whāriki, enables children to learn through relationships, exploring and experiencing different ways to communicate and develop a sense of belonging. Literacy and mathematics are integrated across our programme. We take a weekly excursion to a patch of native bush which supports natural and real learning. This is a very special place that our older children treasure.
