Philosophy

“Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti árahia o tátou mahi”. Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work

At Cribs2crayons, we believe:
• In a play-based programme where teachers use children’s interests as a vehicle to facilitate their learning
• In empowering children by supporting them to make their own choices and lead their own learning
• Each child is an individual whose preferences, culture, language and identity should be respected and celebrated
• Relationships are the foundation for learning, therefore we strive to build caring, trusting relationships with our children and their whánau
• Parents and whánau are part of the centre, and will be encouraged to share in the daily programme
• Our teachers are learners too, and will engage in regular professional development to ensure practices are current and of the best quality
