Wycliffe Nga Tamariki Philosophy:
At Wycliffe Nga Tamariki Kindergarten, we aim to develop each child holistically by:
We respect all children as individuals and strive to achieve equity by providing opportunities for all and by being responsive teachers. Whanaungatanga is the foundation of our Kindergarten and part of this is our commitment to family/whanau involvement and our aim to provide a welcoming environment where everyone is respected and has a sense of belonging.
Our Favourite 2015 ERO Comment:
Children engage positively in a curriculum that reflects the kindergarten philosophy. They actively participate in learning experiences designed to promote growth. Opportunities to lead and self‑direct their own learning are provided. Children are involved in a gymnastics programme that builds capability and offers challenge and complexity. Literacy and mathematics continue to be significant elements of the programme. Children have opportunities to become confident explorers, scientists and leaders who draw from the wide range of experiences to develop and extend their ideas and abilities.
