At Pitter Patter, we aim to provide the best quality care and education to every child. We view children as capable and confident learner.
We recognise parents as children’s first teacher and strongly believe that it is most important to work in partnership (whakawhānau ngatangata) with whānau and children to support a sense of belonging and children’s well-being (mana-atua) with in the centre.
Being inspired by Reggio Emilia approach, we consider environment as the third teacher. Teachers facilitate the child’s learning by providing a stimulating and challenging environment through provocations and planning activities based on the child’s interests and actively engaging alongside the child as a co-learner.
We value the unique place of Maori as Tangata Whenua and hold strong commitment towards cultural heritage of both parties of Te Triti o Waitangi, with Te Reo Maori and Tikanga woven into our practice.
We have an in-house chef who provides fresh and nutritious meals for our children.
We have an open door policy, welcoming parents, whānau and the local community to be involved with our centre.
