OUR PHILOSOPHY

Little Adventurers’ is a nurturing, creative, fun and stimulating  environment that empowers infants, toddlers and young children to  learn and grow through play-based education. 

Our early childhood environment reflects community life, through  an inclusive mixed age setting. We foster the holistic growth of our  tamariki (children), adding depth to their social interactions and  enabling them to learn through ako (interwoven relationships). 

The curriculum is based on Te Whāriki and the importance of Te  Tiriti ō Waitangi.  

Our teaching practice is influenced by place-based education and  we acknowledge Ngāti Toa as our local iwi. 

Through forming strong relationships with ākonga (all learners) and  whānau, we strive to support and acknowledge their diverse  cultures, beliefs, needs and aspirations. 

By providing a variety of strategies and experiences, we empower  our tamariki to develop a disposition for life-long learning.
