At Central Kids Golden Sands, the four guiding principles of our philosophy include:
Aroha – Love and Compassion
Manaaki – Nurturing and Support
Whakakoha – Respectful and Giving
Whanaungatanga – Relatedness and Connection.
Children and their families benefit from ‘touchstone’ teaching staff who provide consistent caregiving for children, enhancing their learning environment and resulting in children who demonstrate a strong sense of belonging and well-being.
Whānau are welcomed into a high-quality environment that provides many interesting opportunities for children to explore and learn. Teachers individualise centre routines to respond personally to each child on the basis of information shared with parents. Transitions into the older children’s area are well planned in partnership with families. Children experience opportunities to plan and participate in many trips into the local community that respond to their interests. The environment is a strength of this centre. Gardens and native plantings engage children in exploring Papatuanuku and the natural world.
Our door is always open, come in and see us anytime.
