Welcome to Rotorua Community Crèche & Kindergarten!


Our Vision

Our tamariki (children) are encouraged to become curious, competent and confident learners and communicators who have a lifelong love of learning.

Our Philosophy

In partnership with parents, caregivers, whānau and the community we will provide a learning environment that is nurturing, respectful, encouraging, challenging and stimulating and which offers a wide variety of learning opportunities through play.

We offer a curriculum that is child initiated and promotes a sense of holistic development of our ākonga (learners) and meets the needs of our children, their whanau and our community.  The knowledge, skills and aspirations our tamariki and their whānau bring with them to our centre are woven into the curriculum to form the foundations of learning.

We provide an inclusive and equitable environment which values diversity and individual differences and reflects Te Tiriti o Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi).  We will strive to foster a sense of belonging and wellbeing of our ākonga (learners), their whānau and the staff.  We acknowledge and celebrate the cultural diversity of all our tamariki, their whānau and our educators.

Teachers are responsive to the individual needs of our tamariki (children) and their whānau.  We support whānau values of keeping mixed age children together so they learn and grow alongside each other as they do at home supporting tuakana-teina relationships. We are inspired by Te Whāriki (New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum).  We foster open communication where whānau feel respected and are encouraged to share their aspirations, joys and concerns for their children with our staff.

We are committed to ongoing professional development ensuring our teaching practices and our understanding of children's learning and development reflect current theory and practices.  Our dedicated teaching team will provide a high quality teaching and learning environment by developing and sustaining supportive staff relationships where individual and collective knowledge is shared and valued.
