Our philosophy

We acknowledge the Treaty of Waitangi as one of the guiding documents for education in Aotearoa, New Zealand. We believe each child is respected as an individual whose potential is recognised and supported according to his/her strengths, interests and abilities. We believe in the four broad principles of the early childhood curriculum. Te Whariki and the strands and goals which arise from these principles.
