What makes us special?
Our Teaching Team
Our passionate and caring teaching team are enthusiastic and united in our philosophy, with building relationships with the children and their whānau, at the forefront.
We work collaboratively within the community, supporting each other to extend our children’s learning and to show consistency between home and our Centre.
We are continually encouraged by our Centre Manager to show initiative, creativity, sensitivity and to work to the best of our ability. If you ask our teachers, they’ll tell you that they wouldn’t want to work anywhere else!
Our modern centre is well maintained and resourced, with equipment to inspire inquisitive minds and provide physical challenges for children of all ages, in both our indoor and outdoor environments.
With huge, natural grass play areas, for both our under and over 2’s, our children have plenty of space to explore nature in a safe environment.
Our babies can feel the texture of fresh grass between their toes and discover little garden friends, which teachers alongside, and our preschoolers have plenty of space to run, jump and play, all in a natural setting. Outdoor exploration such as planting and bug hunts, encourage their curiosity and learning, and well as being loads of fun!
We have 4 separate rooms, catering to each age and stage of play and development. Named after some of our scenic Canterbury rivers, we have the Clutha Room for our Preschoolers, Waimakariri Room for our 3 year olds, Rakaia Room for our Toddlers, Kowai Room for our infants and we even have a specialist baby area for our crawlers!
