Our Philosophy

We work in partnership with parents and whanau, promoting a community of learners which encourages mutual respect and open communication.

We build warm relationships with children and families that are respectful and meaningful.

We value our small group size which operates in an aesthetically pleasing and child friendly environment.

Children develop thoughtfulness, empathy and respect for all people and their property.

Management and Staff are proud to work at Maunganui All Day Kindergarten, and we constantly strive for excellence in all our work relationships.

We support staff to continually grow and offer opportunities for ongoing professional development.

We offer a rich programme, full of learning opportunities where a child is valued as a full participant.

While children have opportunities to follow their own interests, they are supported by skilled staff, who help to consolidate a child’s current learning and challenge them to extend it further.

Centre policies reflect our respect for the natural world.
