Our vision is to provide an educational environment that is stimulating, exciting and empowers children to learn. The centre will reflect the bi-cultural heritage and multi-cultural society of New Zealand incorporating the curriculum, Te Whariki into the programme.
The holistic development of children will be supported by staff respecting children individually where their strengths and interests are encouraged to become competent and confident learners.


Developing a partnership with parents / guardians / Whanau through communication and consultation is encouraged and valued to support and assist children in their learning and development.
A social worker is available to all families to offer support in varying aspects of parenting and is able to assist in confidence with any concerns and who enhances and encourages positive change to all the Whanau. We endorse and encourage parent involvement with emphasis on full participation in attending our parenting programmes.
We strive to provide affordable quality Early Education and Care to children under five years of age where children are empowered to learn and grow in a caring stable environment, incorporating Christian principles and the Anglican ethos of care, respect and equity.
