Our Curriculum



Our infants are focused on exploring the world around them. We place our focus on supporting and encouraging them as they move around and let them lead their learning and physical development.


Our Toddlers are rapidly developing their physical, social, cognitive and language capabilities. We focus on following tamariki interests - making their learning meaningful and fun! 


Young Children

We place high importance on tamariki becoming confident and competent in who they are. They are learning to take responsibility for themselves as they plan and monitor their own activities. They are developing a greater awareness of themselves as learners. 


Our Environment

To cater to the differing needs of our tamariki we have two areas within our preschool environment.  We have a smaller space for our younger tamariki called the Ruma Pipi and a larger space called the Ruma Paua.  Both these areas have their own fully fenced outdoor play area.  Here at Kohungahunga o te Hoiere we know that all tamariki learn and develop at their own pace, therefore we treat each child as a unique individual and work with whanau during the enrolment and settling process to decide which environment will suit their child best.


Our Kaupapa l Our Approach

Our kaupapa is based on the RIE approach to teaching. The foundation of our practises, philosophy and its principles is Respect.  We believe that communication is the key to building relationships that are based on mutual respect and understanding -  so getting to know you and your child is our key priority.

We know all tamariki learn and develop at their own pace, therefore we treat each child as a unique individual and take their cues and operate as a whanau first and foremost.
