Our Philosophy

We believe in providing quality childcare and educational experiences for rural preschool tamariki (children), in a safe and homely environment.  Every child will be greeted by a friendly face and be treated with respect; they will be praised and encouraged in all that they do. We aim to empower tamariki to grow up as confident and competent individuals, being proud of their achievements and developing their curiosity for life!
