Our philosophy

At Learning Adventures we believe that all tamariki are competent and skilled learners capable of leading their own learning. We support all our tamariki by allowing them to set the pace for their own personal learning journey and providing a curriculum based around each child’s individual interests. We believe that it is important to help our tamariki develop essential life skills, we encourage and support them as they develop self-help skills and confidence in themselves as capable learners. We strive to provide a learning environment that encourages tamariki to respect and appreciate everyone, regardless of gender, culture, or religion, and is designed to support and encourage each child’s wellbeing and sense of Mana and belonging.

We acknowledge that New Zealand is a bicultural country, and as such work hard to incorporate Te Tiriti o Waitangi into our centre. We work closely with our whanau and community to offer a learning environment that encourages the partnership, protection, and participation of all our tamariki, their whanau, and each family’s culture.

Our teachers aim to provide an environment that feels like a second home, developing respectful, nurturing, and meaningful relationships with all our tamariki, whanau, and families. We enjoy the presence and active participation of all our families and whanau, encouraging them to spend time in our centre with their children as we work in collaboration to support their aspirations and the interests of their tamariki.
