Values Drives our Action and Inspires our Behaviour.
Our philosophy outlines the set of beliefs commonly held by our village. It defines who we are, what we believe about people, and how we create an environment where learning can flourish.
Children are all unique, born full of potential and ready to be active explorers and contributors to society.
That an environment of loving kindness, nurturing and responsive care switches on and releases children’s full emotional, intellectual and spiritual potential
That all human beings are innately good, powerful to express their thoughts and feeling and actively looking to make a positive contribution to the world.
That children’s emotional intelligence and capabilities are strengthened through positive guidance and role modeling from peers and adults.
That all children are innately connected to papatuanuku and free exploration of nature helps to facilitate development of their emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual capacities.
That children are capable of expressing themselves in many different languages and it is the job of educators to listen and co-construct knowledge in the journey of learning.
That ‘play is the highest form of research’ and that free play is the highest expression of human development, of a child’s knowledge and their own soul.
That an environment filled with beauty and order will inspire creativity, wonder and curiosity that will aid children in expressing who they are and what they are learning
That parents are the child's first teacher and that it is a privilege to co-share the responsibility of education and well-being. We believe it ‘takes a village to raise a child’ and that strong and connected communication.
We acknowledge and respect the unique position of Maori as Tangata Whenua in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
