Curriculum

  • Young children learn as a result of their own doing–through their actions, relationships, inquiries, play and observations.They learn from their individual experiences of seeing, touching, moving and hearing called “experiential learning” which is the foundation of our curriculum. Our progamme is designed to cultivate children's interests, support their needs whilst challenging their intellect, build self esteem, social interaction and school readiness.
  • Creative Arts
    Children get to experiment and play with a wide range of media, materials and instruments whilst involved in art, music, dance and movement. Children enjoy having fun expressing their thinking and creativity with paint, clay, shaving foam, ribbons, singing and a variety of musical instruments to name only a few.
  • Early Literacy and Language
    Children are encouraged to recognise sounds, letters and words during early literacy and language development. They learn to write their own name and acknowledge the different languages of the world taking into account English, te reo maori, pacific languages and any other language spoken by families whom may attend the centre.
  • Early Mathematics and Numeracy
    Children are encouraged to gain an understanding of counting, number recognition, measurement and distance. They are inspired to experiment seeking patterns , sorting and matching as well as identifying shapes and learning the concept of space.
  • Field Trips and Excursions
    With the activities undertaken at the Centre based around the interests of the child this sometimes leads to an exciting adventure out of the Centre for over 3 children. A child’s interest in planets could lead to a trip to the Carter Observatory, an interest in animals could lead to a trip to the zoo, or an interest in fish to the rocky shore at Plimmerton. Under 3 children will enjoy in centre theatre groups and other visitors with fun,interesting shows.
