OUR PHILOSOPHY

As Teachers in this community we work with and alongside whānau, kotahitanga, to support each child on their individual journey to become a lifelong learner. We facilitate genuine, honest relationships with children and whanau so we can ensure we achieve an inclusive, diverse environment

Children experience positive, responsive and meaningful experiences through quality interactions with peers and teachers to enhance their learning and development. We honour and respect our whānau and their aspirations for their children

The early childhood Curriculum Te Whāriki is woven in to everyday planning and assessment to promote relevant learning.  Children are encouraged to think for themselves, show independence, make choices and be enthusiastic learners. The positive and calm environment at New Beginnings Preschool gives children time and space, atahaere to engage, explore and discover.

We foster and empower respect manakitanga; respect for ourselves, respect for each other, rangimarie and respect for the environment. We consciously create an environment which is warm and trustworthy, valuing and respecting real connections with each other and our community. 

Children are cared for and nurtured to promote their well-being and sense of belonging within our safe and peaceful environment. Self-identity and emotional resilience, mana, are key elements in our learning community and our reciprocal relationships with each individual support this development. We support children to reach their full potential and always ensure we look at each child positively and recognise their strengths. Each child is viewed as an individual and we provide equitable opportunities and celebrate culture, tradition and family values, whanaungatanga.
