Nursery

  • In the nursery your infant or toddler (pepi) will spend his/her time with Coral who is a qualified and registered Early Childhood Teacher

    Coral believes that the most important thing in your child’s life is relationships, yours being the most important.  To support the relationship between you and your tamaiti she has a primary care giving system operating in the nursery.  Coral believe infants and toddlers needs should guide timing and pace of routines. A secure attachment with a familiar and unhurried adult creates a calm and respectful environment where children are free to explore, play and learn.  She supports children’s learning by gaining knowledge of their interest and needs and developing and implementing a culturally inclusive curriculum, which includes Bi-cultural practices. This is a passion of Coral’s and she strives to incorporate these into her everyday practice.

    At times, Rowena, the Centre Manager also teaches in the nursery with Coral.  Rowena strongly believes in supporting tamariki and whānau holistically.

  • A statement from our latest ERO report

    The quality of the care and education in the nursery is very good. The quality is most evident in the:
    * conservations that teachers’ have with children to extend their understanding and use of language and help them to have their needs well met
    * interactions that keep children interested and engaged in their learning
    * detailed records of children’s learning in individual profile books
