Our Rooms

With wide-open indoor-outdoor flow, our learning environment caters for children aged from 2 years old through until they start school. The traditional Maori pedagogy of Tuakana/Teina is proudly woven within the integrated programme in which children are encouraged to embrace peer support and build lifelong respectful relationships.
