New Shoots Sunnynook Childcare Centre
Relationships are the foundation of our practice. Our outdoor area is a communal area –this provides opportunity for siblings / cousins and children of different ages to build and maintain relationships and share learning opportunities. Whaanau support teachers are instrumental in relationship building both for the child and family.
We have a strong commitment to bi-cultural practice.
Environment is the third teacher. We provide an engaging environment which engages the child in learning opportunities.
We value the art of play – understanding that children explore their world, develop and consolidate knowledge / working theories and practice mastering dispositions for life (problem solving, perseverance, resilience, social and emotional resilience) through play. These dispositions lead to successful outcomes in any walk of life.
