DSC07091-592-485Under-two Area

Our under two area is a safe and caring place for small children. We prefer to keep a small group size so we can concentrate on forming quality relationships with children and their families. Our babies receive high quality care and find a little home away from home in our under two area.

 

Over-two Area

The over two staff have been GOPR0444-963-202-138together for many years and have a real close bond. You could often wonder who is having more fun, the children or the teachers. The tamariki enjoy playing and learning in a rich and stimulating environment that supports their interests. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful setting which invites children to investigate, challenge and participate in activities that promote their thinking and physical skills. Teachers have a good understanding of emerging literacy and mathematics, and foster these concepts through children’s play and individualised learning plans.

 

059-326Transition to School

As our children approach five they move into our daily transition to school programme. Our goal is to have our children well prepared and eagerly anticipating attending school. We like to be active and have fun. Our tamariki like to get out there and experience life. Confidence, self help skills and a can do attitude are dispositions we really like to equip our tamariki with before they leave. Our environment is well resourced and promotes early literacy and mathematics. Children confidently use a wide range of information communication technologies to research their schools and interests.

A fantastic reading on transition to school is,
Peters S.(2010). Literature review: Transition from early childhood education to school. Report commissioned by the Ministry of Education. Wellington: Ministry of Education.
