The Kea Room (ages 1-2 years)
Children are encouraged to express themselves while learning through play. We recognise that these are their most crucial developmental years and ensure we provide a variety of learning opportunities for all tamariki. Creating fun with limitless opportunities to grow and develop is important to the team in the kea room. We aim guide the tamariki while they are developing their autonomy in a safe and trusting play space.
For new children, we encourage 3 settling visits, approximately 2 weeks before your child’s start date to ensure a smooth and settled transition for both you and your child.
Children transitioning from our Pounamu Room will have regular accompanied visits to get familiar with their new environment and meet their new friends, ensuring this is a positive step in their learning journey. Our Transition Policy is available by asking a member of the team.
As well as daily face-to-face catch ups about your child’s day at drop off and pick up time, we use Storypark to share photos, videos and audio of your child’s development so you never miss out on those special moments. Storypark also offer a handy mobile app so you can have updates right to your smartphone.
