our curriculum

To learn and develop, a child must be in a secure and happy environment. Our well prepared and carefully designed curriculum is enhanced by the support of warm, caring and well trained teachers to achieve our vision of igniting a passion in children to become lifelong learners.

Pikler Theory "As a matter of principle, we refrain from teaching skills and activities which, under suitable conditions, will evolve through the child's own initiative and independent activity."
Dr. Emmi Pikler.
Schema A schema is a thread of thought which is demonstrated by repeated actions and patterns in children's play or art. Through schemas our children are learning and forming cognitive structures in their minds.
Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences inspires teachers to ask "how is this child smart" instead of asking "is this child smart". Gardner's theory provides a framework that assists educators in assessing indivdual children and
how they learn.
Te Whariki is founded on aspirations for children "to grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body, and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society."
