The Pentagon Early Learning Centre

25 Tamahere Drive, Tamahere, Hamilton

http://www.thepentagon.co.nz

At The Pentagon we believe children should enjoy beautiful spaces that encourage them to interact with the natural world.

Our environment:

Located on 5 acres of natural environment we provide a programme like no other. We have real trees, real grass, and real animals!

Our modern, purpose built centre has been carefully designed to provide maximum space for teaching and learning.

We have a large pentagon shaped covered area that connects the two wings of the building together and allows for a large sheltered area whatever the weather! Our backyards have been designed to invite exploration and play, nurture curiosity, stimulate the senses, and challenge our physical abilities.

Our service:

Open from 7am until 6pm Monday to Friday.
We provide enrolment options starting from a minimum of 2 days per week, with hours ranging from 6.5 hours per day up to 11 hours.
20 hours ECE subsidy for 3 and 4 year olds
We provide all meals and take pride in providing fresh, nutritious and tasty meals for our growing children.
Nappies are also provided.
OSCAR programme for school aged children

Our people:

The Pentagon is owned and operated by experienced Early Childhood professionals.
Reciprocal relationships are central to who we are and what we do.
Our team is comprised of qualified, passionate, experienced teachers who love what they do, and who go the extra mile to ensure we provide the best quality care and education.

Our curriculum:

We offer a strong connection to the outdoors, supported by a play based, emergent curriculum where children’s interests and ideas drive our inquiry based approach.
We are inspired by the teachings and practices of Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber. We are also inspired by Forest Schools.
Feeding sheep, caring for chickens, collecting eggs, picking fruit, growing vegetables, and exploring our own forest will be a unique part of your child's day.
