Our registered teachers provide a programme of wonderful activities based on the national curriculum, Te Whariki, which encourages a love of learning, and you will receive regular updates about how your child is developing. The pre-school villa offers the children a large open space with family and role-play areas, areas for construction and art, a library full of wonderful books and puzzles, and a “classroom” area where the pre-schoolers love to ‘play schools’. The nursery house provides the babies and toddlers with the environment and resources to develop their skills in the precious first two years. Your child will have a portfolio which will reflect their interests, as well as show their learning and individuality. Morning and afternoon tea and a cooked lunch are provided, and we are open all year. Please call in at your convenience or phone 389 2483 for more information.
