Our philosophy

Learning Adventures Takanini believes that every child has the right to reach their potential.

We focus on the development of each child’s self-esteem, cultural awareness, social behaviour, independence and self-management, together with developing their personal resilience, empathy and how to be an effective communicator. This holistic development also includes a structured scholastic program, including literacy and numeracy, to ensure the child is ready for school and confident in themselves and their ability to learn.

We acknowledge and respect the cultural heritage of both partners of Te Trite o Waitangi and through this we offer a bicultural learning environment. Learning Adventures Takanini is a multicultural family of staff, children and their whanau. We recognise and respect all cultures, staff members, children and whanau members.

Our guiding aim and purpose is to ensure your child is treated and cared for with loving respect, with all their developmental needs met and that they are prepared for their next stage of schooling. Our overall goal is to develop confident and competent young children who are excited about learning.
