Whareora Room

We approach the curriculum for this age group in a very holistic way that encompasses exploration and discovery alongside each child’s natural stage of development. We treasure each moment of your baby’s journey as they grow, change and develop, capturing these special memories for you to keep for a lifetime.
Babies need to be in an environment where they are nurtured and cared for in a way that follows their very own rhythm and routine. Our loving teachers are well trained in understanding the cues of babies and being responsive to these.
A communication book is also provided for children, to give a clear outline of how your child’s day has been and where they are at in their routine. We believe strong partnerships with you as parents and Whānau are a crucial part of providing quality care for very young children.

Children in this room are encouraged to make decisions for their own learning, encouraged to communicate their ideas and test their hypothesis thus helping them to gain confidence in the process.
There is a strong focus on social collaboration, working in groups, where each child is an equal participant, having their thoughts and questions valued. Children are encourage to use language to investigate and explore, to reflect on their experiences.
