Our Infant & Toddler Childcare Centre aspires to provoke confident capable learners, who we recognise as unique individual Akonga. We have created a respectful, open and nurturing environment, where parents and the extended whanau are welcomed and valued as part of our programme. As educators, we believe it is up to us to give the children the opportunities to express their own creativity, explore widely and connect with their discoveries in their own meaningful way.
As Kiwi teachers we understand that our children are confident and capable learners with whom we are co researchers. This age group experiences many changes and we strive to create an environment that is welcoming, cohesive and challenging. We value and celebrate the multiple cultures within our group and enjoy what they contribute to the Kiwis. We view each child as an individual and value their uniqueness. We also understand the importance of the whanai in our children’s lives and strive to work collaboratively with the children’s families.
The unique learning stage of the Tui Group allows us as learning facilitators to support the children’s key competencies as critical and capable learners. We support their competencies as active researchers by providing a stimulating and challenging environment.
