On entering our beautiful preschool you will be welcomed by our office administrator Angela, our Managers Amanda and Trish or any one of our competent teachers (outside of office hours). This reception area gives you the opportunity to peruse our notice-boards and familiarise yourself with our centre philosophy, vision, policies and our latest Education Review Office (ERO) report. It also allows you to get visually acquainted with staff and their qualifications.
On your introduction into our fabulous, spacious, child centred indoor and outdoor areas, which include many natural resources and aspects of the farming and local landscape, you will see our excellent range of high quality learning resources and activities that engages children’s interests and challenges their developmental stages, making learning relevant for children.
Walking through the Kea Room (2-4 year olds) will lead to the Koromiko Room (infant and toddlers).
The ratio of teachers in the Koromiko Room is 1:3. Teachers provide a warm, calm and nurturing setting, equipped with a wide variety of interesting and holistic experiences that allow tamariki to explore and learn in a safe, but appropriately challenging environment. The tranquil sleep room adjoins the Koromiko room and is equipped with standard cots and trundler beds.
We are proud of our facilities both inside and out and believe they enhance the warm, friendly and fun environment that children and staff alike can enjoy!
