We desire to see children growing up with a love of learning and
an excitement around discovering new things. Learning is encouraged
and celebrated throughout the day, and children have the opportunity
to share their ideas and discoveries during our mat-times and Centrewide
celebrations. Teachers record your child's journey through photographs,
stories and anecdotal notes which we pass on to families via our
purpose built online portfolio system called "Educa".
Educa is an online portal that enables early childhood educators
to record, organise & share updates about each child's
education & development. This is an interactive website that
allows you to comment on your child's learning, ask questions and
interact with teachers. You can find out more about educa by clicking

We place a strong emphasis on literacy learning, and have implemented
the fun and engaging literacy programme called "LETTERLAND"
We love to see a child's excitement as they begin to recognise letters
and the sounds they make - and pointing out words that begin with
the letter of their own name. You can find out more about letterland
by clicking this link: www.letterland.co.nz.
The centre is resourced with an extensive range of learning equipment
and resources that are stimulating, challenging and aimed to meet
the developmental needs of each age group. The environment is assessed
and changed on a regular basis to meet the needs and interest of
New Technologies are embraced and offer your child new opportunities
to learn about the wonders of the world and beyond.
Emphasis is placed
on the importance of respect, acceptance, learning good manners,
morals and politeness
