Our baby room is a home away from home to our precious 0-2 year olds, with fantastic trained staff that support them in a happy, loving and stimulating environment.
Our preschool room, for 2-5 year olds, is bursting with knowledge, exploration, discovery, friendship and laughter. We integrate ‘preparation for school’ into the everyday programme, through individual planning.
KATIKIDS PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING & LEARNING
we believe in:
Quality Education and care for ALL children.
Partnerships/Relationships between children/tamariki, family/whanau, educators/kaiako and the wider community respect for self, others, our environment and our culture.
we will provide:
A stimulating, safe and secure environment that provides challenges, supports calculated risk taking and encourages exploration with experienced and qualified teachers.
and through this we will:
Fill childrens ketes with knowledge through their interests; and encourage lifelong learning.
At KatiKids we believe every little bit helps to ensure sustainability for our precious future generations.
We introduce sustainable habits and practices to our children by encouraging recycling, and growing our own veges in our very own KatiKids garden.
As a centre we use Storypark, significantly reducing the amount of paper used for forms and newsletters.
We use local suppliers and partners where possible, supporting the sustainability of businesses in our community.
