Our Nursery-Under 2's
With renovations completed in the December holidays we are enjoying the new spacious Under 2 environment, with a dedicated ratio of no more then 4 children with 1 teacher, we are enjoying a day filled with exploration and discovery for our littlest learners. With a programme based entirely around the needs of the individual child we will ensure, routines at home are continued while providing opportunities to learn through play alongside children of the same or similar age.
Those aged 2 and older are part of our preschool learning space, they are encouraged to explore and discover following their unique learning journey with the support of their teachers close at hand. Our small setting allows for us to come together for kai and mat time and we use these opportunities to encourage the younger children learning from the older children, we encourage our tamariki to work together promoting respect and care for ourselves, each other and our environment.
Transition to School
From 4.5years old your child will be part of our pathways to school group, our oldest children come together daily during mat time with their kaiako to work around their current learning topic focusing on key skills that promote a positive school readiness profile. Being right across the road from the local primary school allows a weekly classroom visit during phonics time allowing your child to see what a classroom is like well before they begin at school. The children enjoy when the new entrant class also comes back to visit us once a week too allowing them to see the friends who have graduated before them.
